Click here to find out more!
Martin Moone’s parents are short on cash, so Martin is planning on helping his parents out. But there’s only one thing – he needs to make some money! Martin tries to get a job with his Auntie Bridget at the butcher’s shop. Auntie Bridget also doesn’t have much money because the fish shop across the road keeps selling their fish for much less money than Auntie Bridget’s selling her meat!
Nobody really knows how the fish shop owner, Francie Feeley, gets away with selling his fish so cheaply. He doesn’t seem to have anyone work for him at his fish factory, either. No one goes in, and no one goes out. It’s a mystery! To help his auntie out, Martin sets a wild plan to find out the truth and sneak in the factory!
Martin finds that Francie has illegally employed some Brazillian fish-gutters. They’re loads of fun, and one of them, Fabio, becomes a good friend of Martin. BUT, when Martin is found out as a spy, he needs to choose which side he’s on!
