Gr 1-5- FishFishFish has a neat structural concept to showcase point-of-view. Panels can be read by following one of three rows individually, or by going page-by-page in the normal manner. Each of these rows presents a different character's perspective of events; the top is for the oblivious little yellow fish, the middle for the persistent predator, and the bottom is for the broader collective who bands together to prevent a tragedy. Although the eye moves most naturally from left to right, only by taking in the whole page do we get the full story. Thanks to its wordless design, expressive characters, colourful look, and small jumps in time between panels, this tale will appeal to a broad range of children. Even adults can appreciate this nifty approach to the format. Just like Nordling's and Bosch's previous graphic novel BirdCatDog, the final page of FishFishFish states the point. Everyone has their own circumstances, so it is only natural that they act differently.
