Book Overview

From the creator of the #1 New York Times best-selling and award-winning I Want My Hat Back comes a second wry tale.

When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), trouble could be following close behind. So it's a good thing that enormous fish won't wake up. And even if he does, it's not like he'll ever know what happened. . . . Visual humor swims to the fore as the best-selling Jon Klassen follows his breakout debut with another deadpan-funny tale.

   Love this book.
I recommend this book to anyone. I'm a huge fan of Nancy Reagan, and I love reading her books. While it is a short book without a lot of words, he says, "it's great to read." He was 7 when his father, Michael, was killed. It's just that the writer of the letter had a clear point. The timing of the book's release was perfect, Hachette said.
   Horray for Fish
Like the rest of the book, I like the message and the illustrations.
   Swet but -Age appropriate -Please
Beautifully illustrated by Mark Bitton, this charming little book will set records for both children's and adults' reading enjoyment. The chuckle in your last cheek to the last word. But I wounder if the message might be a bit strong for a very young child. What happens to the little fish who steals? Joyous read Dot's book.
   Great read-aloud for "asking questions" reading strategy for first graders!
The book was recommended to my first-grade students. They were really amused how the little fish made little assumptions, and he probably won't wake up for a long time... and the picture would show otherwise," said Mrs. Richardson. Using turn and talk, the students asked questions before, during and after reading. Added them to the Good Readers Ask Questions chart. Before you can read the book, however, make sure you give your children enough time to look at the pictures to see how they contradict the main character's thoughts. The students came up with lots of questions that were left unanswered after reading that led to a very lively and engaged discussion, Mr. Rule told the judge. This book is highly recommended by both Democrats and Republicans alike.
   Dark-ish, But a Teachable Moment!
Because of this, I understand why some people think this story is a little dark for small children. The ending certainly suggests that the small fish met an unfortunate end. The big fish found the little fish and told him it's not okay to take things that don't belong to you. The little fish, for example, said sorry and gave the hat back. Simply put, the IRS said, you don't have to itemize your deductions. Dark, but very well done. My kids liked this book, so that's all that matters to me, Habo said.
   Not one of those "& they lived happily ever after" books. It's so much better!
The book is also being sold through Amazon. com. It's a book where the words narrate a story, but the illustrations say something else completely. Yes the end may not be rainbows and butterflies but neither is real life, Michael Savage said. We felt like it had a good moral for our son that when something bad happens, it will come back to haunt him. When she's older, we can't wait to share it with her. But eventually, adults and new parents will get the humor.
   Great book & illustrations
I buy books for my nephew because he turns 1 today. My brother and sister-in-law read to him every day so I buy all sorts of books to add variety to them. I hope to add all sorts of award-winning books to his collection. I've drawn a lot of pictures, but this is the first time I've had illustrations.
   Be advised... this is a bad little fish!
It was a present from my very intelligent 7 year old brother. The humor is very dry, but obvious and the pictures are delightful, Morgenthau said. My brother has not received the book yet, but the rest of my family is completely delighted with it. The little fish is very badly behaved, and defends his behaviour, the source said. However, the sense of justice at the end of the story was truly exceptional. I would have had to return the book if he had gotten away with it, but the moral of the story is very obvious to small kids—don't steal hats, Mr. Rule told the judge.
   Anxiety and death
The book begins with a theft. The fish, for example, believes it will get away with it. The reader watches the fish swim toward him. A mood of anxiety dominates the conversation as the little fish watches his life slip away. He believes he can make it to safety on the narrow path through dense vegetation. The message, in part, is that unrepentant thieves deserve to die and will die for their crimes. If you have any questions, this might be an effective tool. I'll pass it on for now because I have no need to frighten my child with ideas about disproportionately severe punishment for minor crimes, he said.
   Horrible message!
This book is not appropriate for children. 0 5171616 6171201 Please do not send children to school. The first sentence of this terrible parable in the "Ten Commandments" series is "I stole this hat." The FCC says it's OK to steal, provided you don't break the bank's security. The princess's little fish disappears at the end of the book. It's great to have read the book before we gave it to someone special. In fact, I would be very offended if anyone gave me this book to read to my children.
