Book Review and Giveaway: The Pout-Pout Fish. Ends December 10th
The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen, illustrated by Dan Hanna
The Pout-Pout Fish tells the tale of Mr. Fish, who spends his days with his fish-face stuck in a permanent pout. Though his pals try to cheer him up, they have little success. But as the story swims along, an unexpected friend arrives on the scene and helps Mr. Fish to discover that glum isn’t really his destiny.
My Review: The Pout-Pout Fish is a fun, rhyming picture book about a fish that swims the ocean with his face stuck in a permanent pout. Some of his friends like Ms Clam, Mr. Jelly and Mrs. Squid wanted to know why he has a cross-town frown, and an unattractive trait. But Mr. Fish told his friends that he was destined to be a glum. But someone came along to turn Mr. Fish pout-pout fish face into a ……! You will have to buy your copy to find out.
This is a story that children of all ages would love to read. And if you have a child with a pout-pout face then this book will help turn it into a happy one. The illustrations are colorful and bright bringing each page alive. I highly recommend the book for your home libraries.
The Pout-Pout Fish In The Big-Big Dark by Deborah Diesen, illustrated by Dan Hanna
The Pout-Pout Fish In The Big-Big Dark is a follow-up to the popular The Pout-Pout Fish. Illustrated by Dan Hanna and published by Farrar Straus Giroux, this new tale follows Mr. Fish’s adventure into the deepest part of the ocean.
Mr. Fish wants to help his friend Ms. Clam when she loses her pearl, but though he’s fast as a sailfish, as smart as dolphin, and as strong as a shark, Mr. Fish has a secret: he’s scared of the dark!
My Review: When Ms. Clam loses her pearl Mr. Fish comes to the rescue. He offers to help her find it. He swooped through the water looking for the pearl but he had to venture into the deep sea if he was to find Ms. Clam‘s pearl. But his only weakness is that he is afraid of the dark. Will he be able to keep his promise to Ms Clam or will he be brave enough to swim into the deep to look for the pearl?
But look who came along to help Mr. Fish conquer his fear of the dark, his friends Miss Shimmer and Mr. Lantern. A great story children would like to read that teaches them about friendship and conquering fears.
