A little angelfish learns to cope with unwelcome teasing
What do you do if you are an angelfish who feels so bad you don't even want to go out swimming?
That's how bad Potter the angelfish feels some days, all because of a teasing crab named 'Alakuma. 'Alakuma teases Potter about his size, about his name, about his timidity, about everything.
Potter has three very good friends and each one has an idea about what Potter should do. "Tease 'Alakuma back!" suggests Lio the seahorse. "Stand up to him!" advises Stripes the shrimp. "Get mad! Fight back!" throws in Jolly the nudibranch.
Potter soon learns that these aren't the best responses to hurtful teasing. But eventually Potter has a very good idea of his own about how to deal with 'Alakuma and, over time and with the support of his three friends, Potter is able to use this new strategy to turn 'Alakuma from a teaser into, maybe...a friend!
Artist Andra Chase has captured Potter's underwater world - Hawai'i's coral reefs - in luminous watercolors. Exotic anemones, brilliant sea urchins and fantastically varied corals all glow with color and life.
Linda Talley's straightforward story offers even the youngest readers or listeners easily grasped tools for dealing with unwanted teasing - tools that may have the 'Alakumas in their lives saying "Aloha."
