Submitter: This book was caught in a recent weeding project. I’m sure there’s a need for picture books on this topic and there aren’t too many available, but a quick scan of Amazon.com shows that there are several that are much more current than this one. Since there is medical information included within the story, the 20-year-old publication date is a big red flag. Also, we thought it was really weird that the fish on the front cover looked so happy about getting caught.
Holly: This is a cute book, but I’m with you. 1989 is unacceptable even for a picture book about a medical topic! And, yeah, what’s with the happy fish? Lee does have beautiful eye lashes, though, doesn’t he?
