A Look Inside The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark (Click on Images to Enlarge) From School Library Journal PreS-Gr 1–Mr. Fish goes on an undersea adventure to reclaim Ms. Clam's lost pearl. Repeating his mantra, "I'm FAST as a sailfish,/I'm STRONG as a shark,/I'm SMART as a dolphin," he nervously admits, "But I'm SCARED OF THE DARK!" As he ventures through deeper and darker waters, his resolution falters: "I know I made a promise,/But this fish is headin' back!" With the help of Miss Shimmer and Mr. Lantern, he not only conquers his fears, but also finds the missing pearl. The playful, rhyming verse is well matched with Hanna's funny cartoon illustrations. The whimsical sea creatures include a puffer fish reading Diesen's The Pout-Pout Fish (Farrar, 2008). A buoyant tale. Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada © Copyright 2010.

From Booklist When Ms. Clam loses her pearl from an epic yawn, Mr. Fish offers to fetch it from the sea floor. As he swims deeper and deeper, he begins to get tremulous—though he knows he is fast and strong and smart, he is afraid of the dark. At last, when the inky depths are more than he can stand, Mr. Lantern shines a light, and together the friends rescue the pearl. Kids listening to the rhythmic text will have plenty to look at, with cartoony fish engaged in all manner of visual jokes. This cheerful book may also help them learn something about conquering their fear of the dark. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Ian Chipman Review “The playful, rhyming verse is well matched with Hanna's funny cartoon illustrations.” ―School Library Journal“With colorful seascapes and bright-eyed ocean characters, Hanna gives this spirited tale light doses of humor (‘Rest stop!’ reads a neon sign on an anglerfish's lure), as Diesen delivers a gentle moral: ‘The ocean is wide,/ And the ocean is deep,/ But friends help friends--/ That's a promise we keep.’.” ―Publishers Weekly“An entertaining read-aloud and a nice lighthearted vehicle for dealing with fear.” ―Kirkus Reviews About the Author Deborah Diesen is the author of the New York Times-bestselling Pout-Pout Fish books, and has worked as a bookseller, a bookkeeper, and a reference librarian.
