Poor Shrimpy! He may be the smartest fish in the sea, but he's also the smallest. Who would want to be friends with such a teeny, tiny fish? Big Al, that's who! Big Al remembers what it feels like to to be an outsider, and he and Shrimpy become best friends. And when Big Al finds himself in danger, it's Shrimpy's smart thinking that saves the day — and wins Shrimpy the respect and affection of other fish.

The little fish Shrimpy is very small and smart, but he has no friends. This story encourage children to be happy with whom they are, everyone has a purpose. Even the smallest people could have the greatest ideas.

This was definitely not my favorite book. I feel like it left much to be desired. It had the basic lesson of friendship and finding friendship in unexpected places, but it just didn't have anything special going for it. Although the text was not outstanding, the illustrations were just beautiful and very creative. I loved seeing the colors of the fish as I turned the pages.

Kindergarten-2nd grade. Good story about friendship and teamwork between two fish. Good for kids to see how people can pull together for someone who is in trouble. Multicultural
