In the whole wide blue sea, there's not a fish as clever as Shrimpy. But poor Shrimpy is so small that no one wants to be his friend. Then one day Shrimpy becomes best friends with Big Al, the most popular fish of all. With Big Al beside him, Shrimpy always has plenty to eat, and he gets to swim to wonderful new places. But when Big Al swims too close to the edge of the Big Deep, it's up to clever Shrimpy to save the day. Andrew Clements, author of the popular Jake Drake series, has created a tale of fish and friendship that is sure to please all beginning readers.
