Description

Even before he had hatched, Finnegan Blink's perilous journey began. Our first tale sets sail with the devious headmaster of the prestigious Hero Hatchery Schoolhouse plotting to prevent the safe arrival of new students. However, it's an ordinary delivery driver, Sam Crawfish, who holds the fate of Finnegan in his aging claw. The question is, will Sam be able to keep his wits about him long enough to save the day? In the second of our two tales, young Fishboy is forced to grow up behind the stoic walls of the Hero Hatchery Schoolhouse, where he is ridiculed for his differences and slow development. Here, he experiences all the difficulties of growing up - but with one additional problem: his tail fin is revealed to not be a fin at all, but legs like that of a human. As a unique creation stuck in a strange cycle of evolution, Fishboy is uprooted from his home and forced to find a place where he belongs. Within his newfound life, curiosity begets adventure, and he embarks upon a dangerous journey, chasing purpose and mystery. One by one each perilous adventure proves to be a character building step towards self discovery, as he crosses over from water to land -- a feat never before accomplished by any fish in the deep blue sea.
