This book tells the tale of a “group of crazy fishing folks” who live on the shore of the sea. Their task is to fill a vat with fresh fish to make into their favorite fish dish, but they have to catch them first. From there it’s just a matter of deciding how many fish each person must catch in order to fill the vat.
As usual, Sally Huss has written an adorable multi-purpose tale for children. Not only will children learn the concept of working together for a common goal, but they’ll be learning math skills as well. I can see a preschool teacher using a felt board of fish cutouts to do this.

The story rhymes in a subtle manner and kids should get a kick out of the back and forth exchanges between the characters. The illustrations are simple, colorful and comical.
I really appreciate Ms. Huss’s ability to come up with new and clever ways to entertain and educate children by writing her “Happy Books”. Wonderful job!
