    Author Deborah Diesen and illustrator Dan Hanna team up once again in this eighth full-sized picture-book devoted to the maritime adventures of that reformed pouter, the Pout-Pout Fish. Admiring the beauty of the ocean one day, our piscine hero is dismayed to see a pile of trash. Enlisting the help of his friends, he sets out to clean up the mess... Pairing an engaging tale told in rhyme - "There's a problem that needs solving, / And we don't know what to do. / But we're going to find some answer Author Deborah Diesen and illustrator Dan Hanna team up once again in this eighth full-sized picture-book devoted to the maritime adventures of that reformed pouter, the Pout-Pout Fish. Admiring the beauty of the ocean one day, our piscine hero is dismayed to see a pile of trash. Enlisting the help of his friends, he sets out to clean up the mess... Pairing an engaging tale told in rhyme - "There's a problem that needs solving, / And we don't know what to do. / But we're going to find some answers. / Would you like to join us, too?" - with bright, colorful artwork, The Pout-Pout Fish Cleans Up the Ocean would make for an excellent read-aloud. The ecological message is abundantly clear throughout, but the rhymes keep everything lighthearted, while the story-line presents a can-do attitude to solving problems like pollution and over-consumption. Recommended to fans of the Pout-Pout Fish, and to anyone looking for fairly gentle picture-books about the importance of environmental stewardship.

    Adorable as always! Mr. Fish and his friends find a big Big Mess! and investigate the who, what, why and how of it all and if you pay close attention to the pictures you might figure it out before they do. I love the hopeful message at the end of this and all of the Pout-Pout Fish books.

It has some hints for recycling and will help teach students and children the value of conservation and helping. It is fun as it gathers friends together to discover who made the mess in the ocean. Who could it be? I love the Pout Pout fish illustrations and Dan Hanna is the nicest guy ever! So seeing his work makes me smile. It is bright and fun to read. The books are written in verse and rhyme which is fun. The original is a favorite of mine but I can see this book as a fun lesson for Earth Day and a chance to talk about conservation and how we impact the planet. I will add it to my Pout Pout collection. Michele E., Library Tech Teacher https://kissthebookjr.blogspot.com/20...

    THE POUT-POUT FISH CLEANS UP THE OCEAN by Deborah Diesen and Dan Hanna brings back Mr. Fish and his friends who live happily in the beautiful ocean. Suddenly, Mr. Fish notices that there is "A big...BIG...MESS!" in the ocean, and he doesn't know what it is. He swims around and shares his concerns with his friends, always asking if they'd like to join him to figure out what it is and to solve the problem.

Suddenly, Mr. Fish notices that there is "A big...BIG...MESS!" in the ocean, and he doesn't know what it is. He swims around and shares his concerns with his friends, always asking if they'd like to join him to figure out what it is and to solve the problem. Together, the ocean creatures come to a disturbing root cause of the mess and decide to go about fixing the damage. The text emphasizes persistence and teamwork in tackling the problem of plastic and garbage pollution in the ocean. And after observing and analyzing the mess, the characters conclude that the problem is themselves. More specifically the bad and careless habits they (and we!) have of a single-use and throwaway society. To emphasize the idealist ocean world of Mr. Fish, the creatures all take responsibility for their actions and work together to not just clean up the mess they had caused, but they also decide to develop new habits for travel, use of plastic, and putting trash where it belongs. The issue is a "big...BIG...MESS," but the story makes sure to demonstrate that change can start with individuals working together.

    After Pout-Pout Fish notices all the garbage in the ocean, he decides to do something about it. Gathering all of his sea-loving friends, they solve the problem. It's clear that this is a big task, but as Mr. Fish points out, the problem was caused by them, and they need to fix it. Sadly, for the creatures that live in the sea, they didn't cause their problems, and it's up to us humans to clean up the messes that we have made.

Sadly, for the creatures that live in the sea, they didn't cause their problems, and it's up to us humans to clean up the messes that we have made. I liked the strong environmental message in the book and how the example of cooperating with each other is the key to success. Caregivers and teachers might want to share this picture book with youngsters as inspiration for taking environmental action of their own or as lesson on working together rather than against each other. The colorful illustrations are filled with details such as eco bags, brooms, and a recycling container, all of which complement the rhyming text featuring many young readers' favorite fish. Pout-Pout Fish has plenty about which to pout when he encounters the mess in the ocean, but not for long.

    The Pout-Pout Fish Cleans Up the Ocean is made up of well-meaning intentions but poor execution. The illustrations, though colorful and inventive, rub up against the uncanny valley with the fish's human-like eyes. (I presume this has been discussed before in earlier titles of the series.) More distressing is the confusing message of the book, which seemingly places the blame for the filthy oceans on "us" - that is, the fish. Given that fish are the *victims* of ocean pollution, I think this will The Pout-Pout Fish Cleans Up the Ocean is made up of well-meaning intentions but poor execution.

Writer Diesen and illustrator Hanna's message is clear, but the results are murkier.

    In this book the fish represent the human population and what we have created. The messes that we have trouble fixing and dumping where we shouldn't. The pictures were very detailed marking issues that we are causing.. Like the turtles eating trash and fish suffocating in plastic rings that hold pop together. Overall, this could be a good book for children and showing them that they still can do something.

    My six year old read this several times over the course of a month before returning it to the library. There are a lot of small details that you notice each time you read. A fish doing something funny you never noticed before, a weird piece of trash that cracks your kiddo up, you know that kind of detailed stuff. It also led to several conversations about pollution, the ocean, trash, recycling, etc.

    I’ve been recording read-alouds while my school’s staff and families “shelter in place” in response to COVID-19. Recently, I posted a “cat-bombed” reading of The Pout-Pout Fish Cleans Up the Ocean by Deborah Diesen. (The beautiful Miss Starfire loves to get involved when she hears me speak into a phone or video recorder.) I like the book’s use of text repetition, e.g. “a big ... BIG ... MESS!” Good, positive message about being the solution to a problem we caused.

    Picture Book This is a great book to introduce young readers to the importance of taking care of the planet. The story follows Pout-Pout Fish & his friends as they realize that they are responsible for the ocean being such a mess. Witness the changes they make to clean up their mess & ensure that it stays clean.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book was great up until the ending. It definitely sends the wrong message to little children. You see a girl fish comes out of know where and kisses the boy fish. Without the boy fish agreeing to the kiss. So now my grandson will think its perfectly acceptable to randomly kiss people at school.

    The ocean crew discovers a problem they've created themselves (litter and pollution) and works hard to fix it. Told is the simple and powerful style we expect from Diesen. Informative text about cleaning up our world at the end. The ocean crew discovers a problem they've created themselves (litter and pollution) and works hard to fix it.

    I can't get enough of the creative illustrations these Pout-Pout Fish books have. Lovely story as well -- teaches about taking responsibility. And at the end of the book it has a page which encourages further discussion on what kids can do in real life to help. It's a winner.

    The usual beautiful illustrations and catchy verbiage, this book has such a good message about protecting the environment and working as a team to do so.

    The art in the pout-pout fish books always seems to me to be subpar (harsh, I know...), but the rhymes are super catchy and provide a refrain for kids to join in on.

    I liked that all the fish worked together to clean the ocean. I like to save the Earth from pollution and they were saving the ocean.

    There's a good message in the book (keeping our environment clean), although it felt a little preachy for a little reader. As in the other Pout-Pout fish books, illustrations are great.
