Fodo Dodo Goes Fishing

$24.95

A bright and contemporary picture book for young children about the fun of bath time, imaginative play—and fishing for underpants from the bath boat!

This morning, Fodo Dodo and Noodle go fishing. They take raincoats, boots, hats and a fishing rod. From their bathtub boat, they soon catch a beautiful striped fish out of the laundry basket—underguppies!

Fodo Dodo and Noodle rush to the kitchen to prepare their feast. But the owner of the underpants is not happy with this game of make-believe. Never mind, Fodo Dodo has another idea to keep the fun alive with an even better use for the rest of the laundry.

This cheerful, simple story takes its imaginary premise to a laugh out loud ending as two silly animals make the most of playtime in the bath. With wordplay, rhythm and repetition, this stylish picture book is built for a fun read-aloud full of silly words and humour. Themes of imagination and play, and contemporary graphic illustrations all help transform a dull or troublesome bathtime routine into a fun, creative playground for toddlers and preschoolers.

Édouard Manceau is the author and illustrator of over 100 books for children. He leads many workshops with children and has won several prizes.

Translated from the French edition by Daniel Hahn.
