Muskie Attack: Blog Tour

For Corbett Griffith III, divorce and two busy parents mean goodbye city life, hello great outdoors. With their busy Chicago careers and schedules, his parents just don't seem to have any time for him. When his mother sends him to his uncle's Wisconsin fishing resort for the summer, Corbett feels that there's no one pulling for him or caring what happens to him.

But all of that changes at Whispering Pines Lodge, Corbett learns he is never really alone, thanks to his Uncle Dell, who takes care of him, and his new friend Pike, who pulls him into one mischievous adventure after another. It's a summer of change for ten-year-old Corbett--even his name changes, when a cute girl calls him "Griffy," a nickname he likes enough to keep.

When Griffy catches two elusive walleyes, he is surprised to discover how much he likes fishing. Eager to test his newfound skills, he and Pike are stunned to hear that a seventy-pound muskie is on the loose. They resolve to catch the ferocious fish, no matter what. For Pike catching a world record muskie would be about the sport. For Griffy it would be about something more. Maybe, just maybe, if he caught that fish is parents would take notice.

Think alligator. Think prehistoric beast. Think mean.

Will they be able to catch the muskie and stop it from attacking anyone or anything?


For a young boy who would rather play video games and sit in his Chicago home, a trip to the great outdoors is more than just an adventure. It's a time of discovery and a chance to grow. G. M. Moore creates  a story that will capture the minds of children with her novel, Muskie Attack. As the first book in the Up North Adventure series, Moore promises intrigue and inspires dreams with Muskie Attack. 

The main character is Corbett Griffith III whose parents are slightly less than interested in him. He suffers from loneliness and struggles to find a place where he fits in. He never dreams that the great up north would
finally be somewhere he's accepted. Corbett seems like the typical 10-year-old boy who craves socialization and wants to make his dad proud. I think this book is perfect for children that share Corbett's age range. 

Moore's writing style is suited for young children without a lot of "filler." I think it's easy for young readers to get lost in the details but this book delivers straight forward up-north action. It would be an excellent book for a parent and child to share. Especially if the parent adds a fishing field trip... =) 

I would definitely recommend this book, and dare I say series, to any parent who wants their child to gain reading experience and enjoy the adventures of the outdoors.
