This wonderful book somehow escaped my attention until it was mentioned by a customer as her child’s favorite book.  We love to hear your recommendations!   The pout-pout fish says “I’m a pout-pout fish with a pout-pout face, so I spread the dreary-wearies all over the place.”  All the sea creatures make suggestions to try to bring  him out of his misery, but it’s not until a beautiful female fish plants a big smooch right on his lips that the pout-pout fish figures out how to be happy.  The rhyming text is fun to read, and the comical illustrations are very expressive.
