Description (publisher website)

Deep in the water,
Mr. Fish swims about
With his fish face stuck
In a permanent pout.

Can his pals cheer him up?
Will his pout ever end?
Is there something he can learn
From an unexpected friend?

Swim along with the pout-pout fish as he discovers that being glum and spreading “dreary wearies” isn’t really his destiny. Bright ocean colors and playful rhyme come together in this fun fish story that’s sure to turn even the poutiest of frowns upside down.

This is just the cutest book! The illustrations are really adorable and your kids will love them. I've included some extra's so you can get an idea of what the illustrations are like. Very colorful and fun. Your little ones will love the repetition of the rhyme as Pout-Pout fish goes around so sadly spreading his 'dreary wearies'. They'll be chiming in as you go along. This is really one of those books that will be a favorite. The story is cute and fun and the illustrations are adorable - pretty much a can't miss type of book!

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
