Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This rollicking salute to North American fish includes the rhyming names of some 46 fish found in the fresh waters of North America north of Mexico. Most are native to the United States and Canada. Park's hilarious digitally created paintings manage to preserve the fish's identifying characteristics while posing them in various antic situations. For instance, "Chestnut Lamprey, lookin' odd./Pupgish, Catfish, Cod, Cod, Cod!" depicts a hungry lamprey with his mouth open facing a page of a pupfish being walked by a catfish toward a fire hydrant while a cod grins out at the reader. Sayre includes a paragraph of information about each of the fish so that interested readers can learn where the fish got its name, where it is found, an interesting fact or two, and whether this fish is endangered or not. Great fun for fisherfolk and a good companion to James Proseck's beautifully illustrated salute to the sport itself, A Good Day's Fishing (Simon & Schuster, 2004). 2004, NorthWord Press, Ages 5 to 12.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This creative fish chant is sure to please Finding Nemo fans. Sayre uses an amazing array of freshwater fish names to form her rhythmic text: "Paddlefish,/Flagfish,/they're all real./Mosquitofish, Sunfish,/Eel, Eel, Eel!" Digitally created on a Macintosh, the brightly colored cartoon caricatures of the creatures are humorous. A "Bigmouth Buffalo" sports a western hat and sheriff's star, while a "California Roach" holds a surfboard under its fin and wears a cool-dude expression on its face. A four-page glossary includes a short, factual paragraph on each species. This humorous romp through a lake will delight children who are fascinated with the underwater world.-Janet M.

    I Also Recommend:

    from Karona Drummond, author of Along Came You

    Trout! Trout !Trout! is a fun and clever book that introduces the reader to freshwater fish of North America. The names of the fish are written in
    fun, rollicking verse that begs to be read aloud. The illustrations are colorful and comical. You can tell what the fish might really look like.
    But the fun thing is, the fish are drawn as caricatures.

    I read this to my third grade class recently. They loved it!

    We love it

    my 2 year old got this as a 'new big brother' gift and he loves it. He was 'reading' it to us quickly, he likes it so much. To hear the fish names come out of a 2 year olds mouth makes it even funnier. I really recommend this fun book.
