The funny follow up to the New York Times bestselling The Pout-Pout Fish from Deborah Diesen and Dan Hanna
Mr. Fish wants to help his friend Ms. Clam when she loses her pearl, but though he's fast as a sailfish, as smart as dolphin, and as strong as a shark, Mr. Fish has a secret: he's scared of the dark!
Very young children will swim along with Mr. Fish as he journeys deep into the ocean to new and mysterious places. They will discover, as Mr. Fish does, the power of friendship to light the way through the big-big dark.

Praise For The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark (A Pout-Pout Fish Adventure #2)…
“The playful, rhyming verse is well matched with Hanna's funny cartoon illustrations.” —School Library Journal
“With colorful seascapes and bright-eyed ocean characters, Hanna gives this spirited tale light doses of humor (‘Rest stop!’ reads a neon sign on an anglerfish's lure), as Diesen delivers a gentle moral: ‘The ocean is wide,/ And the ocean is deep,/ But friends help friends--/ That's a promise we keep.’.” —Publishers Weekly
“An entertaining read-aloud and a nice lighthearted vehicle for dealing with fear.” —Kirkus Reviews
