Booklist - 04/01/2017 Prince rules the “round kingdom” within his royal fishbowl, castle and all. Pirate similarly rules the “round sea” within his fishbowl, yo-ho-ho-ing while keeping a watchful eye on his ship and treasure. When a “dreadful journey” lands them both in a rectangular fish tank, they are terrible at sharing, and they each embark on a quest to outdo the other. Prince’s proper, snooty vernacular hilariously contrasts with Pirate’s raw, salty language: “Halt, peasant!” says Prince, and Pirate replies, “Avast, ye scurvy sea slug!” They just cannot get along, eventually dividing up the tank to separate the kingdom from the high seas with a line of rocks. Will these tiny fish with whale-sized pride ever get along rather than fighting fin to fin? (Spoiler: Yes, but it takes a cuddly new arrival to make it stick.) Lowery’s bold, brightly colored cartoonish illustrations bring the over-the-top rivals to life in droll, eccentric scenes that emphasize each fish’s hilarious habits. At first glance, this is pure silliness, but a tidy lesson about sharing will rise to the surface. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
