In the whole wide blue sea, there's not a fish as clever as Shrimpy. But poor Shrimpy is so small that no one wants to be his friend. Then one day Shrimpy becomes best friends with Big Al, the most popular fish of all. With Big Al beside him, Shrimpy always has plenty to eat, and he gets to swim to wonderful new places. But when Big Al swims too close to the edge of the Big Deep, it's up to clever Shrimpy to save the day. Andrew Clements, author of the popular Jake Drake series, has created a tale of fish and friendship that is sure to please all beginning readers. Download and start listening now!

    " Good book about friendship :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becca Dunlap | 8/30/2013

    " In the big open ocean two very differnt fish form a wonderful friendship. One is bigger and usually acts as the leader until one day he is in need of help. It is up to Shrimpy to step up and be the brave fish. It's a great book for teaching children that size doesn't mean everything. "

    " Not as good as Big Al but decent enough to read as a set. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheryl in CC NV | 2/15/2013

    " A cute enough fable, but I'm sure it's been done better elsewhere. In my opinion, read this from the library but don't buy it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Agnes | 1/16/2013

    " Very predictable storyline, big fish and little fish as main characters, illustrations done in dark tones. "

    " another friendship book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie Jackson | 11/13/2012

    " This book discusses Shrimpy not having any friends but Big Al. One day Big Al falls into the dark part of the sea and Shrimpy shows no fear. Shrimpy gathers everyone and saves Big Al. I would use this book in the classroom to discuss the imporatance of friendship. "

    " The illustrations in this book are beautiful, and it is a sweet and simple story of friendship. I would recommend this to a 1st through 3rd grade class and definitely use it when people are having difficulties with friends, or simply to remind them how powerful kindness is. "
