A big, ugly fish has trouble making the friends he longs for because of his appearance--until the day his scary appearance saves them all from a fisherman's net.

I have a son with special needs, a rare genetic syndrome, and this is his favorite book. He knows he is different from his peers, and like Al in the book, he justs wants to have friends. This is a great story, that I have used to explain to groups (his cub scout troop, his classroom) about my son and how he just wants to belong. The artwork is great, too, which is a bonus. As a special educator, this is a great book for all grade levels, especially as a discussion starter.

Beautiful illustrations although Big Al could look a little scary for younger or more timid kids. Realistic story about how people should not base friendship on external looks, but what a person is like on the inside. There is a happy ending.Was this review helpful?
