The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diessen illustrated by Dan Hanna

The Pout-Pout Fish is a delightful story about a fish who would only pout. He thought pouting was his destiny. All of his ocean friends would try to make him smile, but he always refused. When it looks like hope is lost a stranger fish comes in and helps Mr. Fish realize that even if it looks like he can only frown, any frown can be turned upside down and a new purpose can be found.

I love the illustrations by Dan Hanna! The pout-pout fish is adorable with his droopy frown and you really want to make him happy.

  1. Thanks for the nice review of The Pout-Pout Fish. Dan's art brings a smile to my face every time I see it!

    If any of the readers of your blog are interested in using the book for a story time, there are some free downloadable handouts over at my site (see http://www.deborahdiesen.com/books/pout-pout.html#freedownloads). I can also send along signed bookmarks upon request, for the children who attend.

    Thanks again for the review!
