Lucy Cousins, best known for creating Maisy the mouse, has really gone to town dreaming up all sorts of weird and wonderful undersea creatures. The illustrations are bold and enticing for young readers, and there are lots of lovely descriptive words in the text. The fact that some of the fish are very fanciful makes it a great book for spotting things - colours, shapes, stripes and spots, as well as hair, teeth and even a fish that looks like a pineapple!
This was, without a doubt, my daughter's favourite book in her first year. She loved to turn the pages and to look for Little Fish, who appears in each drawing. The board book edition is a nice size for little hands to hold, and robust enough to withstand a certain amount of rough treatment!
If you're looking for a fun tale packed with colourful characters, 'Hooray for Fish!' comes highly recommended.
The story itself is very short (most of the pages containing only a few words), and it follows Little Fish looking for his Mum and meeting fish of various shape, size and colour along the way. It's the illustrations that make this book what it is, you can only marvel at Cousins' amazing imagination at having come up with all the fantastic fish, from happy fish and grumpy fish to curly whirly and twisty twirly. I was delighted to hear my 3-year-old remembering each fish's name after the first read, and coming up with names for the un-named fish. His baby sister loves looking at the illustrations, too, and both really enjoy watching the story on the TV.

Great book for little people but this time it proved to be the wrong version. I thought I'd ordered the paperback with DVD ( not the board edition) so had to return it.Published 3 months ago by VAP
