children’s author and teller of stories
For this year’s random acts of publicity week, I’d like to give a loud shout-out about my friend Deb Diesen’s book, THE POUT-POUT FISH IN THE BIG-BIG DARK. (Illustrated by the talented Dan Hanna. Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.)
If you enjoyed the first book about the Pout-Pout Fish, you’ll love this one, too in which Fish must conquer his fears to help his friend Ms Clam recover her “yawn-gone pearl.”
And if you get a chance be sure to check out the hilarious book trailer made by Dan for the book. (See below.)
