The Boy Who Swam With Piranhas is written by David Almond. It is a wonderful tale about a boy whose uncle decides to turn his house into a fish canning factory. His nephew, Stanley, runs away to a circus where he feels that he belongs. The characters and storyline in this book are a little different, even quirky.  I think that is why I found it to be such an engaging story.

Opinion: 

My favorite part is when Stanley jumps into the piranha tank,which explains the title of the book. My favorite character is Stanley Potts. He is just a very interesting boy.  The style of writing in this book remnded me of books that I have read by Rondald Dahl.  So if you like his stories, then you will probably enjoy The Boy Who Swam With Piranhas also!
