Synopses & Reviews
A short and sweet mini-adventure especially created to introduce the youngest guppies to the popular Pout-Pout Fish No need to be worried! No need to be sad! Toddlers will love swimming along with the Pout-Pout Fish as he turns little frowns into big smiles. With just one line of text per page, this simple, twelve-page board book will send Debbie Diesen and Dan Hanna's much loved Pout-Pout Fish flippering and swishing into the hearts and minds of very young children.
"The 'glum-glum' star of The Pout-Pout Fish appears in his first original board book, which touches on basic emotions. A straightforward rhyme guides the story, as the frowny blue fish interacts with a wormlike creature that pokes out from holes in the seabed. 'No need to be worried./ No need to be sad,' Diesen writes as the worm disappears from one hole and pops up in another, leaving the pout-pout fish with tears welling up in his eyes. Hanna's mixed-media artwork makes each of the fish's emotions crystal clear as the book moves toward a happy resolution: 'What a smile, Mr. Fish!' Ages 1 4." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
