Even though readers can spot Little Fish's mother on every spread, "he" cannot. Young children will eagerly join him on his search up, down, and all around an African watering hole, where the hippos, okapi, turtles, and crayfish live. And they'll celebrate the joyful finale--the long-awaited mother and child reunion. Full color.
