Staff Reviews

Ugly Fish is like the anti-Rainbow Fish in the best way. A comic, fun to read, vaguely cautionary tale with an outright shocking ending! You will be thrilled to tears/guffaws!


— From Ugly Fish


Ugly Fish is ugly and big and mean, and he won't share his driftwood tunnel or his special briny flakes with anyone. And that means the wimpy little fish who keep showing up in his tank have got to go. But then one day someone bigger and uglier and maybe even meaner arrives . . . and suddenly Ugly Fish isn't feeling quite so confident anymore.

From Kara LaReau, author of the Rocko and Spanky series, here is an irreverent and terrifically funny book about a bully who at last gets his comeuppance.
