Format: Hardcover
Summary: Blobfish takes a book called The Deep Sea Book and turns it into The Blobfish Book. The original is about the deepest part of the ocean, with photographs of some of the animals that live there. Blobfish’s version has a pink cartoon of himself drawn onto the photographs, attempting to make it all about him. Finally, the book gets to the page about blobfish, but the sentence “The blobfish was once voted the world’s ugliest animal” stops the narrator in his tracks. Fortunately, the other sea creatures are paying attention, and they join forces to create a last page that celebrates Blobfish and cheers him up again. Includes more facts about the deep sea and its creatures, plus a list of additional resources. 40 pages; ages 4-8.

Pros: A fun blend of fact and fiction, with some facts about the deepest parts of the ocean being snuck in around Blobfish’s slightly obnoxious, but always good-intentioned narration.

Cons: The informational part is pretty slight.

Blobfish jumps from the page and captures our attention and hearts from the first page to the last. This book is deep in more ways than the deep sea where he lives. This book is full of interesting facts and photos of the strange creatures that share Blobfish's underwater home. Yet this is a backstory to the lovable antics of the childlike fish who looks for what all children do, attention and acceptance. The story is perfectly aligned to a child's view of the world. A book that will be read again and again! I vote for Blobfish!

All 4 of my kids (but especially the 3 year old and the 12 year old) are in love with Blobby. The pictures are so fun and clever, and in addition to a sweet story, there's some interesting information about some fascinating (but maybe a little obscure) sea creatures. My 3 year old starts giggling whenever we pull this book out to read.

Literally every page of this book makes me laugh. Blobfish is all of us. The combination of photos and drawings is so clever, and the story has a beautiful message about self acceptance and friendship. Kids will also learn about some awesome sea creatures! Highly recommended.

This is our current favorite at bedtime. My kids have long been sea obsessed and Jessica Olien made a sea animal story with a hilarious amount of personality.
A good book for:
-kids who want to learn more about ocean zones
-fun facts about deep sea creatures
-friendship and cooperation
-learning to share the limelight (even in the darkest part of the ocean)
