Product Details


“Prince, an entitled goldfish, and Pirate, a fish of a decidedly naughty nature, are content as can be within their own little bowls. Then along comes the terrible day when they find themselves sharing a single tank . . . Taking a cue from classic movies and sitcoms of yore, they make a line down the tank’s center constructed from white pebbles . . . A watery odd couple perfect for potential royals and scurvy curs alike.”—Kirkus Reviewsstarred review

“When a ‘dreadful journey’ lands [Prince and Pirate] in a rectangular fish tank, they are terrible at sharing, and they each embark on a quest to outdo the other. Prince’s proper, snooty vernacular hilariously contrasts with Pirate’s raw, salty language: ‘Halt, peasant!’ says Prince, and Pirate replies, ‘Avast, ye scurvy sea slug!’ . . . . At first glance, this is pure silliness, but a tidy lesson about sharing will rise to the surface.”—Booklist

“Gunnufson’s goofy story about acceptance and sharing . . . gives Pirate and Prince big personalities, and their respectively gruff and highbrow comments will make for peppy readalouds.”—Publishers Weekly
