Kids will love getting to know Plankton and Mussel in this laugh-out-loud, under-the-sea picture book!
In this funny, underwater picture book, Plankton says hello to Mussel, but Mussel doesn't say anything back. Plankton tries everything to get quiet Mussel to talk. In fact, Plankton gets VERY pushy about it! Will Mussel ever open his mouth? Kids will relate to Plankton's frustration with Mussel, and they will be anxious to see what happens when Mussel finally does open his mouth... Geisel Award Honoree Jonathan Fenske delivers a laugh-out-loud ocean story, and this is the perfect follow-up to Barnacle is Bored.
Praise for Barnacle Is Bored:
"This playful book addresses the universal problem of feeling bored while everyone else appears to be having a great time. . . " - School Library Journal
"Fenske's open, flat-colored, loose-lined, animated cartoon style and simple dialogue-bubble text in a large, bold font are inviting for new readers." - Kirkus Reviews
