The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark

The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark

by Ken Geist Illustrated by Julia Gorton

Mama tells her three little fish that it's time to seek their fortunes. Jim builds a house of seaweed, but the big bad shark munches it up. Tim builds a house of sand, but the shark crunches it up. It's smart Kim who sets up house in an old sunken ship!

"Little fish, little fish, let me come in."

"Not by the skin of my finny fin fin!"

"Then I'll munch, and I'll crunch, and I'll smash your house in!"

Children will delight in this silly story with funny, eye-popping illustrations and foil on the cover!
