THE POUT-POUT FISH IN THE BIG-BIG DARK
by: Deborah Diesen and Dan Hanna

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.
