Fishing in tidepools is fun, but watch out – if you take a little fish home for a pet, you may get more than you bargained for.
A Fisherman’s Tale, by Keith Faulkner and Jonathon Lambert, is a delightful lift the flap book which kids will love and parents enjoy reading.
The story is a little reminiscent of another old favourite, Seuss’s The Boy Who Fed His Fish Too Much, but this does not detract from the book. Kids love lifting and unfolding flaps and pages as they see the fish grow bigger and bigger and bigger, and the final flap with its satisfying ending.
A Fisherman’s Tale, published by Australian publisher, Koala Books is suitable for one to six year olds.
