I just don't know how you can not LOVE the Pout Pout Fish books. But just in case you need convincing....Deborah Diesen's latest, The Not Very Merry Pout-Pout Fish, is simply splendid! Pout Pout Fish was born with a frown on his face - making him appear quite pouty....but he tries very hard to overcome this pout. In this book, Mr. Fish is trying to find presents for his friends - but he seems to be striking out at every turn and time is running out before Christmas. He ends up giving the best gifts of all, using his own two fins!! The rhyming aspect of this book is such a fun, non-forced rollick that kids adore these books. And who can resist a fish with a Santa hat, anyway!?!?!
*I was sent a copy of the book for an honest review by the publisher.
