Something’s Fishy (Toon, $12.95) in Kevin McCloskey’s newest book! With his entertaining illustrations and goofball humor, the author of We Dig Worms and The Real Poop on Pigeons provides a whole school of fish facts in the increasingly popular graphic novel format. Children will discover how to determine the age of a fish by its scales—assuming, of course, that the fish has scales in the first place. McCloskey also devotes ample time to the noble goldfish, describing what easy pets they make, how they get their color, and how big they can grow in an aquarium. As always with Toon Books, adults new to the genre can refer to the back pages for practical tips on reading comics with kids. Ages 5-8.
