Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Octopus loves living on the busy reef under the sea. From her cozy cave, she can see clown fish, and sea turtles, and little butterflies swimming by. She especially loves watching the seahorses having fun, wiggling and twirling. Sometimes she will play with them, but occasionally Octopus just wants to be alone, somewhere quiet, and not so busy. So one day, she swims far, far beyond the reef and finds another cozy cave, only here she is perfectly, wonderfully alone. It is exactly what she wanted . . . until she’s ready to go back home to be with her friends.
As she did in Little Owl's Night, Divya Srinivasan shows children a wonderful part of the natural world in a very warm-hearted way.

Synopsis:

Big Al, an ugly and fierce-looking fish, longs for friends, but all the otherfish flee whenever he approaches them. Then one day, in a display of strengthand heroism, Big Al proves that the true test of a friend is how he acts, nothow he looks. Full color.

Synopsis:

Poor Big Al! He just wants to make friends. And in the whole wide blue sea you can't find a nicer fish. But because Big Al is large and scary-looking, the little fish are afraid to get to know him.

What can he do? He tries everything he can think of — from disguising himself with seaweed to burrowing under the ocean floor so he'll look smaller. But something always goes wrong, and lonely Big Al wonders if he'll ever have a single friend. Then one frightening day, when a fishing net captures the other fish, Big Al gets the chance to prove what a wonderful friend he can be!

Don't judge a book by its cover. No book better speaks to and illustrates this truth than Big Al. A big, monstrous, and rather icky looking fish, Al has problems making friends. Until, of course, he makes his true self known. I love this book and it is great to use as a teaching tool for children who are (naturally) afraid of "different" things. Truly beautiful.
