Amazon.com Review

Mr. Fish wants to help his friend Ms. Clam when she loses her pearl, but though he’s fast as a sailfish, as smart as dolphin, and as strong as a shark, Mr. Fish has a secret: he’s scared of the dark!

Very young children will swim along with Mr. Fish as he journeys deep into the ocean to new and mysterious places. They will discover, as Mr. Fish does, the power of friendship to light the way through the big-big dark.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Pout-Pout fish book!
By Kaila Winston on August 11, 2020
Another Pout-Pout book we love! After reading some reviews I was a bit skeptical about ordering this one but I'm glad we did.
Along with the original Pout-Pout Fish book, this too perfect if you like to read to your kid in a sing-song fashion. My daughter loves the repitition of "So he swam a little deeper...... but I'm scared of the dark!" It's like she waits for it in anticipation lol. There's also quite a bit going on on a few of the pages so it'll keep your little one's attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even the fish in the Big-Big Dark read Pout-Pout!
By K. Mitchell on June 30, 2016
This book is just as fun a read as the original Pout-Pout Fish. My seven month old doesn't quite seem to care for it as much as we do (we claim it's his favorite - it's really ours), but I'm sure that will change with age. It's just such a fun book to read out loud. The illustrations are the best and they do manage to capture his attention when I read. I got a laugh today when reading and noticed that one of the fishes that lives in the Big Big Dark trench is actually reading the original Pout-Pout Fish. Kudos for sticking that in there :)
