The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark by Deborah Diesen

Diesen, Deborah The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark, PICTURE BOOK.  FSG, 2010.  $16.99.  Language-G (0 swears, 0 “f”), Sexual Content-G; Violence-G;  This is a wonderful story that has a bunch of friends helping one another to find Ms. Clam’s lost pearl.   Mr. Fish sets out on the quest and even when he gets scared he keeps going with a little help.  It has a nice poetry feel to the story with the rhyme.  The illustrations are nice color penciled like style.  The storyline is sweet with a happy, but predictable ending.  It has lots of ways a teacher can relate the problems to student’s own problems.  This book was very, very enjoyable.  EL – OPTIONAL.
