Big Al

Written by Andrew Clements

Illustrated by Yoshi

Reviewed by student in 21st Century Learning Program

The story is about a fish named Big Al. It is so ugly that all the other fish don't want to be around or see him. The lesson that this story teaches is that it does not matter how you look.

I liked the book because it shows you that how you look does not matter. My favorite part was when the fish became Big Al's friend. It reminds me of myself because sometimes I don't feel like I look nice.

I would recommend this book to a fisherman because they also like fish. This would also interest readers who are not happy with how they look. They might realize that looks are not everything.
