Big Al doesn't look like the other fish around him;
he's bigger, uglier and even seems kind of scary!
He tries hard to look like a fish the others would choose
for a friend, but his efforts are to no avail.
One day, the bright, little, picture-perfect fish all get caught in a net!
This lonely fish doesn't waste a second coming to the rescue.
Big Al rips a hole right through that net and all the little fish rush to safety
"The net was strong, but Big Al was stronger."
I love this well illustrated, easy to follow story that helps even the youngest readers
grasp the concept of not judging a book by its cover...not judging a classmate by their
size or appearance…not missing the chance to make a new friend because someone looks so different.
