Like all cats, this cat absolutely loves fish. But what do you do when your owners start acting strangely? They don't seem to understand the importance of fish any more. They are too busy buying tiny clothes, gathering colorful toys, and redecorating in pastel colors. And one owner in particular seems to be getting a lot . . . bigger. Something Fishy is a very funny family story from the award-winning Polly Dunbar. The adorable cat's journey from jealousy and anxiety to love and acceptance will appeal to any child with a new brother or sister on the way!

Praise For Something Fishy

"A wry look at new-sibling anxiety and jealousy through the eyes of a fish-loving feline. Funny and very effective for families with a new arrival. Dunbar's cat protagonist is an expressive delight." —Bookseller

"A funny and charming picturebook in which a first child’s jealousy of a new sibling is transposed onto a scratchily drawn cat whose owners, distracted by the baby, have stopped giving him the fish he constantly wants. A delightful way to tame a child’s dark feelings about a new arrival." —Sunday Times
