The Only Fish in the Sea

Did you hear about little Amy Scott? She got a goldfish for her birthday and then just threw it in the ocean! That doesn't seem right.

I guess Sherman and Sadie will have to go save little Ellsworth (every fish deserves a proper name) on their own. They'll need:

A boat
Fishing gear
Twenty-one pink balloons
A bucket of paint
Appropriate headwear in case of weather—good or bad

Don't worry. Ellsworth is in good hands now, but what ever happened to little Amy Scott?

Join Sadie (Special Delivery) on another adventure in this delightful picture book by Philip C. Stead and Matthew Cordell.
