The funny follow up to the New York Times bestselling The Pout-Pout Fish from Deborah Diesen and Dan Hanna

Mr. Fish wants to help his friend Ms. Clam when she loses her pearl, but though he's fast as a sailfish, as smart as dolphin, and as strong as a shark, Mr. Fish has a secret: he's scared of the dark!

Very young children will swim along with Mr. Fish as he journeys deep into the ocean to new and mysterious places. They will discover, as Mr. Fish does, the power of friendship to light the way through the big-big dark.

Our 2.5 year old LOVES this book! She can recite every line and the book has given us a great opportunity to talk about being afraid, pouting, persevering when things get hard and how friends help us when things are hard. Highly recommend this book!

My Review: When Ms. Clam loses her pearl Mr. Fish comes to the rescue. He offers to help her find it. He swooped through the water looking for the pearl but he had to venture into the deep sea if he was to find Ms. Clam¿s pearl. But his only weakness is that he is afraid of the dark. Will he be able to keep his promise to Ms Clam or will he be brave enough to swim into the deep to look for the pearl? But look who came along to help Mr. Fish conquer his fear of the dark, his friends Miss Shimmer and Mr. Lantern. A great story children would like to read that teaches them about friendship and conquering fears. FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from free spirit publishing in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

Great book, kids love the illustrations! Kids love the ocean theme, very curious about what happens next?! Great story to talk about feeling words such as scared, disappointed, sad and just what is a pout? Also about friendships and working together to solve problems.

Pout-Pout Fish makes a promise to find Clam's pearl which has fallen in the deep, dark trenches of the sea. Urged on by Ms. Shimmer, together they are able to find the pearl. The rhythmic rhymes in this book are hugely fun and will help children develop phonological awareness as they learn the sounds of the words. If you like this book, you'll also love Deborah Diesen's "The Pout-Pout Fish."
