Not bad, but not great
Reviewed in the United States on September 4, 2021
I bought this book because we really love the original pout pout fish book. We love illustrations, we love the story, we love the cadence….But this one does not have the same nice writing style, or even the same cute illustrations (it’s funny, because pout pout fish definitely looks like he needs a vacation, his eyes are bloodshot and he looks pretty tossed —- but I don’t think that was the intention).
Overall, it’s a nice easy read with a nice message, still a good book to have in your collection, but don’t expect it to be on the same level as the original.
