School Library Journal - 06/23/2023 PreS-Gr 3—Pearl the angler fish really wants to read her book, but everyone in the ocean wants to talk to her or distract her in some way and she is getting really impatient. She dives deeper and deeper, introducing readers to some of the amazing creatures that live in the darkest parts of the ocean. Pearl eventually finishes her story and realizes that it would be even more fun to share the book with others. The illustrations of the sea inhabitants are dazzling—most have an intensely dark background to reflect the part of the ocean where the sunlight doesn't penetrate. The vividly colored creatures nearly leap off the pages. Readers will enjoy the humorous way Pearl tries to find her own space as well as the variety of other animals she encounters. VERDICT This fun and vividly illustrated book is a strong choice for libraries seeking books about sea creatures, respecting each others' personal space, or the joy of sharing reading with others.—Debbie Tanner - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
