Reminiscent of Leo Lionni’s Swimmy, Terry’s wit and fortitude provide guidance for all his friends, who conceal and disguise themselves within the coral to shrewdly outsmart the hungry eel. Themes of individuality and self-esteem along with the importance of using inherent assets to thrive subtly come through in this aquatic fable. A pleasing fish story.
An excellent read aloud and a wonderful pick for those looking for a Rainbow Fish alternative.
