Who doesn't like delicious candy treats?
Who doesn't like full-blown, giggle-inducing silliness?
And who doesn't LOVE a blobfish story?
What's a blobfish, you ask? It's a recently discovered, gelatinous inhabitant of the deepest waters off Australia, and it was voted (in an online poll) the world's ugliest animal! Check out the video on Miranda Paul's website to learn more about it, scientifically, here.
Despite that pathetically sad face, the central character in BLOBFISH THROWS A PARTY is one clever fellow. He's not happy with his circumstances:
Opening end papers- pretty lonely place, right?
"Blobfish lived at the bottom of the ocean.
The dark, lonely bottom of the ocean.
With no lights.
And no delicious treats."
Rather than mope around, Blobfish makes a plan.
Two plans, in fact.
1) He can throw a party.
If that fails...
2) He can save the world, because heroes always get what they want.
But when a fish shouts its invitations from the depths of the ocean, a wildly wacky version of the "telephone game" ensues. His message reaches mermaids, who distort it before their version is heard by shorebirds, whose twisted version moves on to monkeys. Their various comical chants wind their way to sheep and farmers, on to dancers, and kids
playing soccer. In each case, though, the the word "PARTY" remains intact. Because, of course, who doesn't love a party?
The resulting planet-wide party has everyone smiling, except BLOBFISH, who is still all alone in that dark depths of the ocean.
But when alien invaders on a mission to steal delicious Earth treats encounter the convoluted consequences of those shouted invitations, Blobfish's "Plan B" is surprisingly successful.
Illustrator Maggie Caton's vibrant colors and energized figures combine with Miranda Paul's cleverly wacky word play, providing laughable layering and entertainment as the story unfolds.
Blobfish lived on the bottom of the ocean where it was dark and lonely. He was tired of being alone. He wanted friends, and lights and delicious treats, but how was he going to get them?
Blobfish decided that there were only two ways to get what he wanted – one was to have a great party, the other was to save the world and be a hero. Either way he would get friends, and lights and delicious treats.
Realizing it was unlikely that he would have any reason to save the world, Blobfish knew hero status wasn’t much of a possibility. That left the party, so he shouted out, “DEEP-SEA PARTY! BRING A TREAT TO SHARE!”
Blobfish’s invitation wasn’t understood by anybody the way it was intended. For example, the mermaids heard it as “Cheap, free party! Sling on a sheet to wear!” Everybody heard it differently, so it just got more and more wacky, and wild, and noisy – all over the planet! But Blobfish was still alone.
Then something happened to change everything. There was an invasion. The rest you have to find out for yourself. 😉
Blobfish Throws a Party by Miranda Paul is a funny rhyming story that, with each page turn, is sure to inspire giggles and anticipation for what is coming next. The gorgeous illustrations by Maggie Caton depict the story perfectly. This is one of those picture books adults will enjoy reading over and over to the children in their life.
Written by Miranda Paul, illsutrated by Maggie Caton and published by Little Bee Books.

I was given a copy of this book in order to provide an impartial review.
***I discovered a cool Scholastic non-fiction book entitled PINK IS FOR BLOBFISH c) 2016 which states, "The blobfish was recently voted the ugliest animal in the world in a poll taken by the Ugly Animal Preservation Society." (!)
