What's Poor Doreen About

Publisher Summary

An Ample Roundy Fish called Mrs. Doreen Randolph-Potts is on a mission: to visit her second cousin twice removed who’s just welcomed 157 babies. But when she spies what she thinks is a yummy dragonfly—and is actually bait—poor Doreen is lifted out of the water on a fishing pole. Luckily, Doreen is, shall we say, a wee bit clueless about the dire situation. Kids will love being in on the joke as our oblivious heroine arrives, in a roundabout way, at her final destination. Sally Lloyd-Jones, author of the New York Times bestseller How to Be A Baby, and acclaimed illustrator Alexandra Boiger bring the world of a fish to vibrant, funny life.

B is for Bookworm's Rating

The dramatic irony from the narrator of this story makes this book truly fantastic. Not only is there humor, a fun story, and a loveable character, this book has shapes of letters in the illustration for you to find (that it calls out through the text). Such a fun book!
