HarperAlley. Jun. 2021. 48p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9780063076648.
K-Gr 2–Bored Fish ventures to the surface of the ocean in search of light and unexpectedly meets the Sun in all its glory. Fish plays games and basks in Sun’s warmth, but the good times don’t last long, as Fish’s new companion sets for the day, leaving Fish cold and forlorn. The next day is a bright beginning as Sun peeks through the clouds to reunite with Fish. This beginning comic reader is an ideal introduction to the sequential art format, and the guided reading series provides a short tutorial for budding comic fans. Ruzzier presents a delicately designed story of friendship full of intimacy and emotion. His textured watercolors mirror the environment as well as the shifting moods of the lonely Fish.
VERDICT Fish and Sun are two delightful characters who will touch readers’ hearts. The perfect story for emergent readers and developing visual learners.
