Synopsis: With the cheeky twist of Jon Klassen’s This Is Not My Hat and the graphic appeal of Mo Willems, Poor Little Guy will leave kids giggling…and begging for rereads!
What do you do when you're so tiny that the bigger ocean creatures think you might even tasteadorable?
An itsy-bitsy, glasses-wearing fish is minding his own business when a playful (and hungry) octopus snatches him right up. Luckily, this poor little guy is not quite as innocent as he seems…and he has a BIG surprise up his sleeve!
Told with wit, a wink, and a delightfully dark sense of humor, Poor Little Guy celebrates the very smallest...and all of their giant victories. Hand this cute but mighty book to fans of Bob Shea and Dan Krall.

The little fish is just swimming around minding his own business when an octopus surprises him and decides to have some fun. However, it's the little fish who has a few surprises up his fin.
I absolutely adore this book. The simple text and detailed illustrations will easily keep little ones engaged. The sea creatures' silly antics will have readers laughing out loud and leave them wanting to hear the story over and over again.
I shared this book with my two-year-old grandson and he was giggling with delight and cheering for the little fish to swim faster and faster away from danger. We read the story together a couple of times and he soon had the pages memorized and was "reading" it to everyone else.
Kudos on a job well done! I highly recommend picking up a copy of Poor Little Guy.
