Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark

I'm not gonna lie...I LOVE the Pout-Pout Fish regardless of what adventure he is on.
Whenever my kids are grumpy and I want to make them laugh (or scream at me more) I ask them if they are being a Pout-Pout Fish.  If they insist that they aren't but are still pouting then I simply start to smooch, smooch, smooch them into giggles.  Lots of fun and a great torture tactic! 

Deborah Diesen has gone and done it again with this new Pout-Pout book!  I am usually wary of sequels but I was hooked by the time I reached the last page!  If you have a little one that's afraid of the dark then this is a must have.  I wish the Pout-Pout Fish would be the next Berenstain Bears series.  Little life lessons are just so much more fun through fish eyes!  (That's saying a lot 'cause I kinda HATE fish usually.)

Dan Hanna did these adorable illustrations.  My favorite page is with all the fish advertising fun things in their mouth (you'll know which page I'm referring to when you read it).  Dan Hanna's page has some fun activities and other fun Pout-Pout stuff so go check it out.

Speaking of things you HAVE to check out, I found this incredible YouTube video of the first Pout-Pout Fish book.  Whether you have or haven't read it you will enjoy this video, and I dare say your kids will make you play it, replay it, put it on repeat, until you never wanna see it or hear it again.

Blub, Bluuub, Bluuuuuub!
