With the cheeky twist of Jon Klassen's This Is Not My Hat and the graphic appeal of Mo Willems, Poor Little Guy will leave kids giggling...and begging for rereads
What do you do when you're so tiny that the bigger ocean creatures think you might even taste adorable?An itsy-bitsy, glasses-wearing fish is minding his own business when a playful (and hungry) octopus snatches him right up. Luckily, this poor little guy is not quite as innocent as he seems...and he has a BIG surprise up his sleeve.
Told with wit, a wink, and a delightfully dark sense of humor, Poor Little Guy celebrates the very smallest...and all of their giant victories. Hand this cute but mighty book to fans of Bob Shea and Dan Krall.
