Amazon Description

Ugly Fish is ugly and big and mean, and he won't share his driftwood tunnel or his special briny flakes with anyone. And that means the wimpy little fish who keep showing up in his tank have got to go. But then one day someone bigger and uglier and maybe even meaner arrives . . . and suddenly Ugly Fish isn't feeling quite so confident anymore.

From Kara LaReau, author of the Rocko and Spanky series, here is an irreverent and terrifically funny book about a bully who at last gets his comeuppance.

One Potato Review

Ugly Fish, bored and set in his ways, needs to learn to share his aquarium with a succession of annoying and obsequious imports, but nothing about that set-up prepares you for the ensuing Darwinism - or maybe it does, and we’re just out of practice. If you think your children are likely to pattern their behavior after a warty, talking fish, then you definitely shouldn’t order this book. Otherwise: Enjoy!

I know I’m too old to read Ugly Fish aloud to myself, but you’ve more than persuaded me. I love reading about your mornings folding into evenings.
