Description



About the Book



Sadie, Stead and Cordell's take-charge protagonist from "Special Delivery, " is back, and this time she's building an elaborate and foolproof plan to save a poor discarded goldfish. Full color.



Book Synopsis



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
And
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 The Only Fish in the Sea, a delightful picture book by Philip C. Stead and Matthew Cordell.

A Neal Porter Book



Review Quotes




*"A contemporary tall tale fueled by the characters' genuine caring and heart. Best read one-on-one to feast on the clever cartoon artwork."--School Library Journal, starred review

*"This is comforting fare for children, especially those who themselves have been cast adrift, and sensitive readers in more secure situations may even spare some sympathy for Little Amy."--Booklist, starred review

*"Stead never takes Sadie's campaign for virtue too seriously, yet her shining sense of justice lingers long after the silliness subsides."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

*"Readers who are looking for more moxie in their lives will love this absurd adventure."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Throughout, Cordell's style is reminiscent of Quentin Blake's work, with comically perilous seafaring scenes that recall the Miss Armitage picture books. Meanwhile, Stead's text contains echoes of Dahl's writing, with moments of dark humor, a satisfying comeuppance for Little Amy Scott, and a surfeit of heart in the child heroes' rescue of lost Ellsworth."--Horn Book
