Dear Fish by Chris Gall

Dear Fish by Chris Gall (Little Brown, 2006). When Peter Alan writes inviting the creatures of the sea to visit, they take him up on it. Pufferfish float, a shark bucks a bullrider–talk about a whale of a tale! An imaginative juxtaposition of land and sea. Endpapers include a guide to the featured fishies. Ages 4-up. Highly recommended. Take a PDF peek at the interior pages from Chris’ site (bottom right-hand side).

Cynsational Notes

Fanciful book. The appeal reminds me of the “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” where we see the dinosaurs in our world, which was a sort of “King Kong” tribute.

Dear Fish was a 2006 Borders “Original Voices” Book and a Barnes and Noble Book of the Week.
