I loved this book, the illustrations were very colorful. Very imaginative story of a fish. I think this would be great for all children and fun for adults to read aloud. This book promotes storytelling, because without it the little fish may have never made it back to school. It shows how stories are passed from fish to fish. Very cute book I would recommend to everyone.
Fairly innocuous retelling of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." Children who are especially interested in fish and the ocean (or who have just seen "Finding Nemo") will probably especially appreciate pooring over the detailed illustrations. There's nothing special or terribly unique in the narrative, though.
My 2 year old loves this book. Colors are beautiful, lots of sea animals to point out and learn. Mom and dad read together whenever "Tiddler's late" and my son loves to anticipate it. Interactive and engaging. Highly recommend.
