The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The funny follow up to the New York Times bestselling The Pout-Pout Fish from Deborah Diesen and Dan Hanna

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 Publishers Weekly

Jul 19, 2010 – In this sequel to The Pout-Pout Fish, Mr. Fish promises Ms. Clam that he will retrieve her lost pearl, but as he swims closer to the dark sea bottom, "his heart flit-fluttered." With Miss Shimmer's help, however, he may find the pearl and his inner courage. With colorful seascapes and bright-eyed ocean characters, Hanna gives this spirited tale light doses of humor ("Rest stop!" reads a neon sign on an anglerfish's lure), as Diesen delivers a gentle moral: "The ocean is wide,/ And the ocean is deep,/ But friends help friends / That's a promise we keep." Ages 2 5.

Customer Reviews

Great but didn't realize it wasn't narrated!!

My son loves the original narrated pout pout fish book so I just assumed this one would be narrated too. Unfortunately it is not and I wasted 9.99 since we already have two hard copies!! My fault for not investigating further. Think 9.99 is a little steep for a non narrated book on an ipad!! The content of the book is great
