What happens when the creatures of the sea take Peter Alan up on his offer? Something fishy, of course! At first, their visit is all fun and games, but then, things really start to get out of hand? Watch out for a bucking bull shark at the rodeo, the invasion of a slimy school of fish, and many other playful pictorial puns hidden in these striking, surrealistic illustrations. An endpaper identifying over 30 species of fish appearing in the book is an educational bonus. Here is a fantastic flight of fancy that every child will savor, with a subtle message: Be careful what you wish for!

Peter Allen had a wonderful day at the beach, so he wrote a note to the fish and invited them to come for a visit. The next morning, Peter heard a strange dripping and a flipping and a flopping and a gurgling. The fish took him up on his offer!

What happens when fish come to visit? Author/Illustrator Chris Gall shows us in this delightful fish tale. Imaginative illustrations and a catchy story will hook young readers.
