Barry the Fish with Fingers and the Hairy Scary Monster

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Books

Review

Barry the fish and his friends are playing hide and seek. Barry finds all his friends except Puffy. Puffy has hidden deep inside a wreck where it’s dark and scary. A strange, hairy monster creeps up on Puffy. He is so scared he swims back to his friends, telling them to hide quickly. Bravely, Barry ventures into the wreck and discovers the 'monster' is Colin the seahorse. He badly needs a haircut and is very upset that everyone is scared of him.

Barry cuts Colin’s hair and all the friends use it to dress up as pirates and have a pirate party.

A simple and humorous story about appearances and acceptance with bold, bright illustrations. Ideal for classroom use.
