Poor Doreen
Random House, Inc.
An Ample Roundy Fish called Mrs. Doreen Randolph-Potts is on a mission: to visit her second cousin twice removed who's just welcomed 157 babies. But when she spies what she thinks is a yummy dragonfly—and is actually bait—poor Doreen is lifted out of the water on a fishing pole. Luckily, Doreen is, shall we say, a wee bit clueless about the dire situation. Kids will love being in on the joke as our oblivious heroine arrives, in a roundabout way, at her final destination. Sally Lloyd-Jones, author of the New York Times bestseller How to Be A Baby, and acclaimed illustrator Alexandra Boiger bring the world of a fish to vibrant, funny life.

Baker & Taylor
Featuring illustrations intricately designed to promote early letter recognition, the story of dutiful little fish Doreen describes how she emerged from the water on a fishing pole and was unwittingly swept into a series of misadventures before arriving at her destination.
