Just when it seems their struggle might end in a silly stalemate, a little surprise convinces them to find a way to get along-swimmingly.

Horn Book Review

Prince and Pirate, both fish, are forced to share a fish tank, but their oversize personalities clash. When a new fish arrives, the former enemies band together to welcome him. The adversaries' back-and-forth banter is full of royal and swashbuckling exclamations, perfect for reading aloud. The colorful and amiable illustrations--with an inside-the-tank perspective--buoy the humor and drama. (c) Copyright 2018. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
