Inspired by their own toddler watching Blue Planet and being struck that he was unable to tell fish apart from the plastic floating in the world’s oceans, this is a tale of a very helpful little fish who is equally puzzled by the Odd Fish bobbing along. He and his shoal decide the Odd Fish must be lonely and that they will help him find his family.

The text and images flow along with the current very creatively, as they meet dangers and help to rescue other creatures. An octopus trapped in a net and a turtle struggling to eat a plastic bag are saved. Eventually they meet a school of Odd Fish of all shapes and sizes and colours. “There were too many Odd Fish to count”.

A gentle tale which effectively gets across the message that unsuspecting ocean creatures are put in danger by not being able to recognise that plastic is not edible and also by just how much of it there is. The real fish are very lively, and children will enjoy their little conversations. The beautifully ocean toned images and clever page design are very engaging. The authors note with information about pollution and how you can help at home and at school makes this a very useful introductory text for environment topics.
