The Pout-Pout Fish and the Bully-Bully Shark

(4) PS Illustrated by Dan Hanna. Mr. Fish and friends are playing at the park when suddenly, "The shark showed his teeth, / And he growled as he swam. / 'Move aside, micro-fishies! / It's my turn. SCRAM!'" Mr. Fish's eventual response defangs the shark implausibly easily, but six Pout-Pout books in, there's still impressive bite in Diesen's rhymes. As always, Hanna's adorable cast conjures aquatic Muppets.
