Though pals Bear, Otter, and Porcupine profess the titular love of fishing, Squirrel, contrary to the insistence of Bernstein’s (the Warren & Dragon series) perky narrator, does not: “Fish smell too fishy,” he says, holding his nose, tongue out. But he joins his friends on their bucolic fishing expedition anyway, becoming increasingly cranky—about the walk through the woods to the water (“I stepped on a pebble”), the sheer boredom of sitting in the boat (“I ate all my nuts already. Nuts”), and the sudden rainstorm that Bear finds refreshing (“Rain makes my fur frizz”). . . . Rosenthal (the Small Walt series) slyly sabotages his own sunny drawing style as he portrays the irritation that inevitably arises out of close relationships: Squirrel’s misery is both relatable and funny, and the pals both oblivious and well meaning. (Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW January 2021)
The exaggerated expressiveness in the bright illustrations, all the way to the fishy endpapers, makes the play between art and text especially enjoyable for sharing. (The Horn Book March/April 2021)

5-9 years old so we added it to our family story time. The kids like that each character speaks for themself so you get to know each of their personalities!
