Here is our last book review for 2020. We have read many many books this year, and this adorable poem picture book is a perfect way to finish. Below is what we thought of A Fish and His Friend and a little giveaway to win a copy.


Book Description

A fish and his friend have lost his friend’s mummy. To find her and help them find their way back home, they meet some new friends along the way. Come along for the ride and enjoy this tale to tell. It’s a poem you will never forget.

About the Author

The author has a love for poems. She always wrote them as a hobby and then added and added to them over time. Her dream is to become an author. She worked as a teaching assistant so she believed she could combine the love of two things to make one.

A Fish and His Friend by Fern Paisley - Review

A Fish and His Friend by Fern Paisley is published by Austin Macauley Publishers and is available direct from Austinmacauley.comAmazon and all good booksellers.


What We Thought

Stunning illustrations placed throughout A fish and His Friend, and they are bold, bright and full of details. We spent ages looking at these as we read through the book.

We don’t read poetry books very often, but after reading this one, we certainly will from now on! It’s perfect for my little reader to learn about rhyming words and poems. It’s lots of fun to read out loud even if some of the rhymes tripped me up if I went too fast!

The author has a lovely way with words and it shows.

Thank you to Austin Macauley for our copy.

  1. I agree with you the illustrations are just beautiful. I love rhyming books as for a grown up it’s so much more fun to read and just seems really upbeat and cheery.

  2. This looks like a lovely book. My grandson is learning about rhyming words in his school lessons at the moment so this book would be ideal for him
