The pout-pout fish is always…you guess it pouting! He encounters several friends including a squid, an octopus and more. None of them seem to be able to turn his frown upside down! Maybe he just hasn’t met that special someone yet. This book is a great read aloud. It has rhythm, rhyme, and repetition. It also introduces the youngsters to some pretty fun sea creatures, and some of their interesting habits. The pictures are really cool, and have super funny faces for all of the characters. The colors find a perfect middle ground between soft and bright, and they really make the sea look like a place of many wonders!
