Fabulous fishy fun!
on 3 November 2011
In this charming book for pre-schoolers, Little Fish invites us to explore the ocean and meet all his friends. After being introduced to happy fish, grumpy fish, hairy fish, scary fish and even curly-wurly fish (amongst others), we finally get to meet Little Fish's favourite fish of all - Mummy!
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.
