Great story and great purchase!

Book arrived in great shape with dust sleeve intact. Story is very cute for my kiddos.

Missing page

It's a cute book and the illustrations are pretty. Unfortunately the printing that I received is missing 2 pages (and as a board book you can tell it was just a misprint, there aren't any pages torn out).

Love the book, not happy with my copy

Very good message, fun illustrations, a good read for moody days.

The Pout-Pout Fish is a wonderful book for children and adults.

This is such a sweet book that is sure to bring a smile to your face. It's about perspective and choosing to have a negative or positive attitude.

Pout pout fish

Awesome Book!

My little guy loves the colorful pictures. This book is funny, cute, and teaches a couple of good morals. The rhyming in it is incredible.

The power of positive influence and choice for kids

Two wonderful lessons are taught with beautiful illustrations and catchy verse. My children want this read over and over. This book teaches that we have choice in regards to our attitude and that we can indeed affect others with our attitude. My 3 year old almost has this memorized as the verse is simple and catchy. She loves the pictures and the ending :) My wife shared this with a neighbor, who frankly admitted, "oh my gosh, I am a Pout Pout Fish!" and has been working to change that. Children and adults will leave with a warm heart for the messages, the illustrations and the rhyming verses.

Really Deserves Five Stars

I don't believe for a second that the vocabulary level is really the point of this book. It has rhythm, alliteration, and emotion. If you read like Ben Stein, it might not be that great. But if you are excited to read it with your kids, it brings the story to life. Don't worry about a few big words. Kids don't know all of the meanings to every word, but they can understand the story through context, just like we do. Pout Pout is wonderful. I have it for my son who has loved it since he was 6 months when I found it. I gave it as a shower gift. My friend's new born loves the rhythm and feels soothed by hearing this book.


My daughters love this funny, sweet story about a dreary-weary pout-pout fish who cannot be cheered up by any of his sea creature friends--until one little girl fish, rather than using words, plants a kiss on his pout-pout face. The story is cute, the repetition is fun and the illustrations are the absolutely wonderful--colorful and full of expression. A great book for young kids.

Amazing Illustrations

Not only does this book have a touching and entertaining story, but the illustrations are amazing! You will have so much fun with Mr. Hanna's imaginative creatures that you'll be lost in the pages for hours. A must buy for people of all ages!

Great Book for Kids and a Great Message for All

The Pout-Pout Fish really impressed me with its humor, creative illustrations, and positive message. It is fun to read over and over to your little ones. BRAVO!
