A Disappointing Purchase
Reviewed in the United States on March 17, 2015
My 19-month-old love "The Pout-Pout Fish" and "The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big Big Dark", so I was really excited to order this lift-the-flap book for him. I assumed this was an entirely new book, so imagine my disappointment to discover most of the illustrations are take from "The Big Big Dark". There is really nothing new in this book. Plus, at the end, the Pout-Pout Fish is supposedly still looking for Miss Shimmer, but because they used illustrations from previous books, she is shown on a lot of the pages leading up to the end. My little one loves the two books I listed above, and usually really enjoys lift-the-flap books, but he has barely looked at this one. We read it a couple of times, and now he just pushes it away when we pick it up and gets one of the other two. If your child has never read the other Pout-Pout Fish books, they will probably like this one, though.
