The Pout Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen, Illustrated by Dan Hanna
As I've mentioned in previous "E's Pick of the Week" entries, E is crazy for fish and sea creatures. So it's not a surprise that his pick this week is "The Pout Pout Fish" by Deborah Diesen, Illustrated by Dan Hanna. This book is adorable. I actually purchased this book and another one in the series in an auction hosted by Carrie Harris. . This book is absolutely adorable. It has a really fun rhythm that my toddler just loves and the illustrations are *adorkable*. Yes, aDORKable. E and I love all of Pout Pout Fish's friends. As a voice actor, there is so much fun material here to be silly with. It is an absolute joy to read to E.
I'll be giving away a pair of autographed bookmarks from Ms. Diesen to one random commenter. Tell me what you like about this book, E's Picks of the Week, or pouting. Maybe you have a little one with a pout pout face. I'm dying to know. :) I'll announce the winner next week with E's Pick.
"The Pout Pout Fish" is published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux. It is available in hardcover form.
