Holiday shopping can get anyone down, and a certain gloomy fish like Mr. Fish is especially vulnerable to retail fatigue. Mr. Fish has several gifts to buy and little time; racing from store to store, he either cant find the right gift or arrives too late to purchase what he wants. Diesens earnest rhymes keep the story moving briskly, though a recurring refrain (For a gift should be big,/ And a gift should be bright./ And a gift should be perfect/ Guaranteed to bring delight) has the opposite effect. Hannas illustrations are as expressive as in the previous books, and he doesnt miss a chance to sneak some humor into the pages, whether its the homemade gifts Mr. Fish eventually assembles (such as a knit cap that octopus Mr. Eight wears like a tea cozy) or a closing appearance by Manta Claus himself. Ages 26. (Sept.)
