Description
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.
