Picture Book Reviews: Super Fish

Super Fish
Super Fish by Mary Lee

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A cute little story told by a turtle who claims to have met the famous Super Fish, with her purple cape and her super-strength and super-hearing. She helps sea creatures in trouble, and the turtle tells the story of how Super Fish saved him.

The illustrations are cute! The story is funny and snappy! This would be a good book to read aloud to children and make funny voices for the characters.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Super Fish has a purple cape, super-strength, and super-hearing, but does she have super-staring abilities? When the octopus gets into a staring contest with Super Fish, nothing in all the oceans will distract either opponent from their unblinking competition, until Super Fish pulls out her secret weapon!

The illustrations are so cute! Super Fish is an adorable and strong super-hero, and the story is hilarious and snappy! This would be a good book to read aloud to children and make funny voices for all the characters.
