There are Fish Everywhere

Written by Katie Haworth

Illustrated by Britta Teckentrup

There are Fish Everywhere Synopsis

There are fish everywhere! Some of them live in fresh water, some of them live under ice, and some even live in the desert. There are Fish Everywhere is the first in a series of non-fiction books from Britta Teckentrup. Young readers will learn where in the world all sorts of animals can be found and all the weird and wonderful things that they never imagined were true. This is non-fiction with spark and personality from a much-loved illustrator.

There are Fish Everywhere Press Reviews

This is the first in a series of non-fiction picture books by Britta Teckentrup for Big Picture Press, described as non-fiction with spark and personality. Personally, I can't wait for the others if they're all as impressive as this which, knowing Britta Teckentrup's work, they will be. This is a large picture book with the most beautiful tactile cover, glinting with gold and literally covered with fish. it opens onto end pages busy with a myriad of fish. There are 12 double page sections, some interactive, which move logically from What is a Fish? to how fish and humans coexist. The colour palette is rich and jewelled, ranging from the yellow pop of the Bluestripe Snapper to the bioluminescent blue of the Spotted lanternfish. The language uses proper scientific terms which are clearly explained and the text has a lyrical quality, with a light touch and humour. Throughout the pages the fish swim around manageable chunks of information, nicely spaced across the page. Boys in particular will love the weird and surprising facts contained in this book and will have great fun spotting things on the page. Teachers will find plenty of inspiration for art and science activities. * Armadillo *
