Fabulous Fishes

Fabulous Fishes written and illustrated by Susan Stockdale (Working Title Press)
HB RRP $24.95
ISBN 9781921504556
Reviewed by Vicki Thornton

This is a bright and colourful book with simple rhyming text that takes the reader on a journey to see some ‘fabulous fishes’.

Fish, as Stockdale tells and illustrates, are amazing. They can leap and glide, can crawl on land, some even have flashing lights. Fish come in all shapes, sizes and colours and Stockdale has captured them with her vivid illustrations.

This book is a great introduction for younger children into the fascinating world of fish. The language is simple yet the rhymes lead the reader on to turn the page, and the wonderfully colourful illustrations give the book a happy upbeat feel.

There is also thumbnail sketches and detailed information in the back of the book on the fish featured. Making this also a good first reference book for the budding fish fancier.
