“This is an exercise in silliness and laughter! Barry shows all the bored fish of the ocean how many things they could do if they just had fingers! This will be a fun circle time book to play with fingers, thinking of all their uses, and practicing wiggling and tickling!”
-- Katherine Fergason, Bunch of Grapes Bookstore, Vineyard Haven, MA

Life under the sea can be as dull as dishwater, until Barry arrives, that is. See, Barry is no ordinary fish--he's a fish with "fingers" And fingers mean finger puppets, finger painting, knitting, counting to ten, tickling, and all sorts of fun things. It isn't long before all of the other fish want fingers, too. Life under the sea will never be the same again. . . .
Sue Hendra's hilarious text and bright, bold, colorful art will have youngsters begging to read this story again and again.
