Something Fishy by Barry Louis Polisar

I received this delightful book of poetry, Something Fishy by Barry Louis Polisar, illustrations by David Clark (published by Rainbow Morning Music Picture Books, distributed by IPG) for review not long ago.  We LOVED it!  I'm sad to say my 7 year old isn't easily excited by books lately... but when he saw this one he wanted to sit down and read it together immediately (Hooray!).  The poems are clever and delightful, the illustrations are expressive and hilarious.  It's quite wonderful.  Here are a few pictures I snapped to give you an idea.

Herring

Herring fish can travel far. 
Here's some pickled in this jar!

The Crab


Of course, with Father's Day on the horizon, we simply can't forget all the daddies out there!

Pot-Bellied Seahorse
Isn't that hilarious?  I laughed out loud when I read that one to myself for the first time!  The book is filled with many other equally wonderful poems.  Now I must get my hands on Peculiar Zoo by Barry Louis Polisar, illustrations by David Clark.  I have great expectations for it, after having enjoyed this one so much!
