Coral Reef City is home to the most dazzling shoals of tropical fish in all the ocean, and Terry feels grey and dull in comparison, despite being the best at Hide-A-Fish. He’d love to fit in, so he makes a flashy costume to impress them. ‘Hello-o-o everybody! Just call me TROPICAL Terry!’ But is it worth it?
We love this book’s message for young readers: always be yourself and don’t try to change to fit in with the crowd – you’re awesome, just as you are. It’s another brilliantly funny and engaging picture book from Jarvis, tried, tested and loved by the Scout & Co kids. The illustrations are a wonderful riot of colour, making it a super read for kids and adults.
