    A timely reminder that in the rush to find the perfect present for Christmas, sometimes hand-making something personal is best.

    This is a wonderful rhyming book that shows a really great way to give gifts to friends. The pictures are full of humor and lovely, active sea creatures. It is a wonderful lesson for kids. Highly recommended for Christmas or anytime Grades K-5.

    I loved the original tale, The Pout-Pout Fish, and I wasn't sure if this would simply be a typical holiday book, cashing in on the success of the first book.I was actually quite pleased with the story, although I still prefer the original.

    So the thing to remember is, I don't know the first thing about children's books. That being said, the rhyming in here is cheesy, and perhaps the illustrations really appeal to young eyeballs but I am not impressed.

    Super cute book. I read it to some kids in my sons class today & nearly choked up! Very nice storyline. Fun rhyming. Great illustrations.

    One of my kids at school had this book. As I read they kept saying read it Ms. Ruth, I told them I was. One said in your head, I said, yes. Kinder kids are so funny. No you aren't. This is a cute book. Pout pout fish is unhappy he has no friends to celebrate Christmas. Read and see what happens.

    I love these books. I love rhyming books for kids, but I love this series because the author uses '50 cent' words to rhyme withI love stretching the minds of kids. I love that she uses words like "motif." Seriously -- makes my day! :D

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.I had just finished telling my kids how I grew up making my gifts for people, when The Not Very Merry Pout Pout Fish, written by Deborah Diesen and illustrated by Dan Hanna arrived in the mail. It’s arrival could not have been more timely. I had just encouraged my kids to make gifts for Christmas instead of spending money, and reading this book just reinforced my point.

    Relying on repetitive lines and a positive message about gifts that come from the heart, this fourth title in the wildly popular series shows how marine life celebrate the holidays. Mr. Fish tries desperately to find the perfect present for his friends, but either he cannot come up with a good idea or the store's supplies are sold out or the store is closed. Thank goodness for Miss Sparkle who reminds him that his friends won't care if he doesn't buy them a present. Something made by hand--or fi [...]

    Ever since I received this book, my toddler has demanded I read it to him multiple times a day. The story has a wonderful moral that is very important for the gift-giving season. As a mom, I work really hard to try to show my son that material items should not be significant. Not only does this book teach lessons related to this topic, but it prizes friendship. I suspect we will be reading this book again and again in years to come because the need for this lesson will recur as he grows older. H [...]

    The Pout-Pout Fish is one of my daughter's favorite books right now. The library has been setting all the Christmas books out on top of the shelves (it's not even Halloween!!!), but when we saw this, she had to have it.Our favorite pouty fish is back in this Christmas story. It has the same format where it tells a story and as a verse that repeats every other page. Mr. Fish isn't as pouty as he was in the original story, but he definitely gets a bit disappointed by the end when he can't find any [...]

    My Review: Its the holiday season and Mr. Fish is looking for the big, bright and perfect gifts that would bring delight to his friends. The gifts has to be meaningful and has a bit of bling-zing, but he is running out of time. He has gone from one store to another and they are all sold out. What is he going to do? Miss Shimmer come to the rescue and suggested home made gifts, the best gifts that comes from the heart.I like that this story will inspire children to create gifts that comes from th [...]

    Deborah Diesen's series of Pout-Pout Fish books has a new volume with a holiday theme, The Not Very Merry Pout-Pout Fish. (Although the author tries desperately to allow the holiday to be vague, it's clearly modeled after Christmas.) Deep in the ocean, hustle and bustle are taking place in preparation for an ocean holiday celebration. Pout-Pout Fish is experiencing that all-too-familiar sensation of being overwhelmed by the need to find perfect gifts for all his friends. It's making him, unsurpr [...]

    SummaryAll Mr. Fish wants is to get the perfect gift for his friends, but when he can’t find that just right thing, he becomes discouraged. That is until Miss Shimmer reminds him of what the holidays are truly about!ActivityWhen the time is close to the holidays, have each student brainstorm a gift that they could make or do for someone special.

    For whatever reason, Mr. Fish—the Pout-Pout Fish—has delayed his holiday shopping and must now hurry to get it done in time for the gift exchange. He is very specific about what he wants, how it should look, and what it should inspire. Plus, each gift should have the “wow-factor.” That is a tall order for last minute shopping. Mr. Fish goes to the first store where there are baubles galore, yet not one is the right gift for anyone on his list. He gleefully repeats his mantra while thinki [...]

    This book was bought as a gift for my granddaughter but I ended up reading it to my class of second graders. The Pout-Pout Fish is a character who has problems that need solutions to help. He cannot find presents for his friends and the stores are all closed but he wants the just right gift. His friend helps him find a solution to his problem and his presents are a hit with his friends. I used this book to stress the importance of the thought behind the gift that counts, but you could use it for [...]

    I find myself fully able to relate to Mr. Fish in his efforts to find the perfect gifts for his friends. I often have trouble with that myself. But the message here is very true, true gifts gain meaning when given with the heart. The delightful illustrations add plenty of cuteness and cheer for the holiday season. The creative gifts on the shelves in the illustrations make for fun perusing. I like the idea of truly giving of oneself to oneself being the best gift of all. A great holiday read for [...]

    The Not Very Merry Pout-Pout Fish. Now I have to admit, my 10 year old was SO not interested in reading this book, so he passed on it. Suited more to the younger crowd, Pout-Pout is on the hunt for the best Christmas presents for his friends. He goes from shop to shop hunting will he have success?Deborah Diesen has written a cute little book for children that teaches one to look beyond the hype of the season to what is truly important. This book is part of the Pout-Pout fish series.

    You follow Mr. Fish as he goes on a quest to find holiday gifts that are special and have a "zing" to them for his friends. However he quickly burned out trying so hard, especially when most of the items didn't seem "perfect" enough.I like how it illustrates the holiday craze with gift buying and all when ultimately it's the intention behind a gift that makes it truly special.Fun picture book that we sure won't mind reading comes every December.

    Creatively drawn and with an awesome message.Christmas gifts should be given for the joy of giving them and there is no right size or shape.Each individual appreciates something different and giving from your heart makes everything extra special.Using fish and other ocean creatures was an added bonus-as we see their world and their kinds of gifts to each other.

    We love the Pout Pout Fish at our house and I use The Pout Pout Fish in storytime a lot. This one lives up to the original for sure. It's rhyming and rhythm is spot on and it's such a sweet story. My kids loved it as much as I did. I can't wait to use it in storytime.

    The grumpy pout-pout fish tries but to no avail, to find the right present for all of his friends.The illustrations are super cute and very colorful. The story has a repetitive phrase which could help listeners participate in the story as it is read.
