Deborah Diesen is the author of the New York Times-bestselling Pout-Pout Fish books, and has worked as a bookseller, a bookkeeper, and a reference librarian. She lives in Michigan with her family.
Alexander Gould was the voice of Nemo in Disney’s Finding Nemo and Bambi in Bambi II. Other voice-over work includes Curious George. He has appeared in many films and television series.
“Alexander Gould narrates in multiple roles. In one, he is an even-voiced narrator who emphasizes the repetitions and the rhymes. With a mournful voice, he characterizes the pout-pout fish and then sparkles while giving voice to would-be friends: jellyfish, squid, and clam. Underwater illustrations will engage young listeners.” —AudioFile Magazine
