Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

From the tiniest krill to the large gray whale, ocean creatures swim madly through Wish for a Fish--you'll be impressed with just how much information gets packed into the clever Seuss-style rhymes. Cat in the Hat, aboard the S.S. Undersea Glubber, narrates this fact-filled story of life under the sea, along with sidekicks Thing One and Thing Two. You'll learn all about the ocean's food chain, different light zones, and fascinating information about the large mammals that live there. The phonics-based word patterns make excellent early reading practice for any little beachcomber. How can you go wrong with catchy paragraphs like "baleen fills the blue whale's mouth like a grill. As water flows through it, it strains out the krill?" --Jill Lightner

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3 Two titles that feature that favorite old cat, along with Thing One, Thing Two, and Sally and Dick. Both are told in rhythmic couplets. Di-no-saur introduces fossils using a museum as the setting. "With a club for a tail/and a back full of spikes,/this dino was strong /like an army tank. Yikes!" The dinosaurs' names are given, as well as their physical traits. Fish uses a deep-sea sub to take readers through five undersea zones, illustrating the types of fish that would be found at each depth. Even after close examination, the pictures cannot be easily distinguished from those drawn by Dr. Seuss. A good choice for kids who still like their nonfiction told in story form and laced with humor. Sharon R. Pearce, Geronimo Public School, OK

I found this book at an aquarium, and bought it as a gift for my 4 y.o. son and 2 y.o. daughter. Too often, books about nature or science for the younger set give too little info (just pictures and names) or the info is just plain inaccurate. Meanwhile, the books for grade schoolers are too complex (and too long for mom to read as a bedtime story.) This book fills the gap perfectly. It gives honest information in a fun, rhyming format. I am here at amazon.com to see what else I can find in this series, which I had never seen before. I am sure to buy more of these.

Dr Seuss books have done it again. In this magical adventure you get to learn about all kids of sea creatures and the different levels of the ocean. It is a must have for anyone who has children tha love Marine Life. My daughter has this book memorized from cover to cover and it is so factual. I highly recommend this book to any parent or educator. Not only is it fun, but very educational. I learned a lot also!

Wow! I love this book! The Cat in the Hat takes us on an educational tour under the sea, the way Mrs. Frizzle did in the Magic School Bus. Only these books, although written with a controlled vocabulary, rhyme and are fun to read too! "The jellyfish is a most interesting fella. He looks kind of like a transparent umbrella! Stay away from his tentacles (those long stingy things). They stun prey by giving off hundreds of stings!" I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out. This book is a perfect combo of great subject matter presented with real reading fun.

this book (as most cat in the hat) is a huge hit. I read it to my son often and I have been reading it from when he was three to now (he is five). I give it as a little present to other kids all the time because I know that kids like this book. it is one of the most informative of the series and it has just the right amount of information for a 3-4 year old.

My son loves all kinds of animals and fish are no different. He read this book at school and had to have it for home. Although some of the the vocab is a bit challenging for a first grader, he is so into the book that he pushes through all the hard words so he can finish reading. Very fun and educational.

Another great Dr. Suess to add to my collectioin. I am hoping to collect all of them to hand down to my own children and my grand children. My 4 year old grandson gets a new Dr. Suess book each month. He loves them, and he loves me to read them to him. Thank you for allowing me to find this book.
