The Lovereading4Kids comment

Quirky and original, this will be a real joy for both toddler and parent. Full of kindness, Barry, a fish with the special attributes of fingers, uses his unusual feature to delight his friends. Fingers are good for all sorts of things and they are especially good for tickling! But they turn out to be even more useful when Barry saves the puffer fish from disaster by being able to point out the terrible danger that is about to befall him. All ends well with a gloriously fishy romp.

Synopsis

Barry the Fish with Fingers by Sue Hendra

Fish come from all over the ocean to see Puffy the Puffer Fish's amazing bubbles. Big bubbles, small bubbles, square bubbles... they've never seen anything quite so amazing, that is until Barry arrives on the scene. Barry is a fish with fingers and he's going to put them to good use. The fish are amazed. Life under the sea will never be the same again...

Reviews

"A funny tale that relies on one single gag, and ends with the moral that everyone has special talents that makes them unique." Junior

"This is rather fishy fun." Families Magazine
