Codzilla is a heartfelt and hilarious picture book based on the classic school story of bully vs. brains—perfect for fans of favorites such as SpongeBob SquarePants, The Pout-Pout Fish, Ninja Baby, and Vegetables in Underwear!

Bertie is the BIGGEST codfish in school. He loves reading about sharks more than anything, but he’s teased about his size by the littler fish in his school. When they start calling him Codzilla, he gets fed up and starts living up to the name.

But when danger strikes from the deep in the form of a shark, Bertie must use his vast shark knowledge and his sizeable heart to save his friends.

Bertie is a giant codfish who just wants to be left alone to read his shark books. But a bully named Maxwell won't have it. Everywhere Bertie turns, Maxwell is making fun of him and calling him Codzilla. One day, Bertie reaches his limit, so decides to eat the fish who are picking on him.

Now, he can have some peace and quiet, or so he thinks. When they start talking from his belly, he has to get them out. So, he makes himself sneeze, but eating them only makes things worse for Bertie. The others dislike him even more. However, when a shark attacks the school, it's up to Bertie to save the day.

CODZILLA has bright and colorful images that sort of remind me of Spongebob Squarepants. I love that Bertie enjoys reading, but feel bad for him for being picked on. I like that he stands up for himself, but thought it was in an odd way. Guess that's a fish's life. His hobby for reading comes in handy when the shark attacks and it shows how importance knowledge can be.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of fish, standing up to bullies, and outwitting your enemies.
