Overview

This irresistible Eyeball Animation book takes us deep below the sea for a fish-eyed view of the ocean unlike any seen before.

A wild pair of eyeballs built into this high quality hardcover picture book bounce up and down and all around like a dinghy in rough waters. A glossary of the diverse sea life showcased throughout the story makes it a great teaching tool, as well!

William Boniface relays the tale of Max the Minnow in charming and witty verse that is as much of a treat for adults to read as for children to hear. Through his bold and colorful style, Don Sullivan's wildly humorous illustrations bring the underwater world of Max and his friends to vivid life.

U.S. Patent No. 5,941,570; 6.149,201

A small fish sets off to become the biggest fish of all, only to learn to appreciate himself as he is.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
If you like board books that are a bit outre, then this series "Eyeball Animation" books may appeal. Two large eyeballs protrude from the front cover in the face of a very large fish and, on the back of the book, what appears to be a giant eel. Max, the Minnow wonders why all the big fish seem to have so much fun while he and his friends just seem to hide. He decides to venture out on his seahorse and ask some of his fish friends how he can be big. The advice ranges from being cool, to overeating at Sawfish Malts, Pizza Cove, and the Noodle Hut all manned by a variety of sea creatures. At Sharky's Diner, Max got a real surprise, he was the main menu, but all the food he had eaten slowed him down. Never mind this is a bright little minnow, and he finds a place to hide and escapes a nasty fate. This book is not exactly soothing bedtime reading.

    Max the Minnow is a family favorite

    This is one of the books that I never get tired of reading to my daughter, and she never gets tired of listening to. It has great rhythm, silly characters, and fun illustrations. All this AND googly eyes on every page. What more could you want?
