Picture Book Thursday: The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark

by: Deborah Diesen and Dan Hanna
Published August 17th 2010 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)

Since I have always loved the ocean and all its creatures, the Pout-Pout Fish is a natural choice for me for my first review during Picture Book Thursday.  Mr. Fish is a fun, lovable character and in this book a great friend.

The book begins with Ms. Clam.  She lost her pearl and Mr. Fish makes a promise to find it.  As he searches, he comes across a major obstacle to overcome - the dark.  It takes a new friend and the promise he can't break to overcome this fear.

I definitely recommend this book, and if you missed it, the original THE POUT-POUT FISH.  Another fun book with a wonderful, surprise ending.
