5.0 out of 5 stars A Fish...With Fish Fingers for Fingers?! 24 Dec 2011
By Jim
I remember the first time I read The Gruffalo, I remember the first time I read The Highway Rat (He's a thief!) and I will remember the first time I read Barry The Fish With Fingers.

The combination of beautiful illustration and a storyline bordering on the epic make for a fantastic journey through the world of a fish with fingers.

I can see a bright future for Barry. He has a real prescence about him and just seems to leap off the page(more so in the pop up version apparently). I really hope Sue Hendra puts her Barry thinking fingers on and gets to work and some more great fishy tales!

A must buy for any age and a great present to receive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny! 26 Aug 2009
We bought this book (from another shop) for our nephew, and we think that it is great. The book is a very good size and the illustrations are clear, and I'm sure that our nephew will also be entertained.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny fingers! 5 Jan 2010
I love the witty story and illustrations in this children's book. I first read this to my daughter when she was 19 months old. She loves the colourful pages and the story is great as you can be overly dramatic, which makes the story such fun to read out loud!

I only had two slight problems with the book, which caused me to knock off one star from my review.
1. Puffy has a slight attitude problem when he becomes jealous of Barry, and uses the words "hate" and "stupid". So I find myself explaining to her how rude and grumpy Puffy is every time I read this particular page.
2. When the crate falls, the story doesn't expressly explain that there are musical instruments falling into the sea. Older children can read between the lines, but for my toddler, I had to break from the story telling at this point and explain what is in the pictures so the story made sense.

Even with my slight gripes, we still love the book! Just the picture of Barry on the cover makes me laugh. Children all around must now have a very odd image of how fish fingers are made.

5.0 out of 5 stars We loved this book 12 Mar 2014
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
We visit the library every monday and this was one of our selection. Florence said she didnt want to visit the library the following monday and it was all because she knew she would have to return this book.
We got our own copy and all is well. Barry the fish with fingers is now free to swim into another childs book bag.
Funny and appealing to children and mad daddy and I chuckle too. Lovely bright pictures even for the youngest child.
Highly recommended by us. Enjoy

My son came home from nursery talking about this book. Although he enjoyed it the first few times he soon lost interest in the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book
Simple story - good length for 2yr old at bedtime for example. I prefer "no-bot" and "dave", and my daughter appears to as well but this is a fine variation :)
