Tropical Terry

By Jarvis
Illustrated by Jarvis

Terry wants to stand out. But, in Coral Reef City, it's sometimes better to blend in...

Coral Reef City is home to the most dazzling shoals of tropical fish in ALL the ocean. And then there is Terry. Terry looks grey. Terry feels dull. And although he is the best at playing "Hide A Fish", he can't help but wonder: Just what would it feel like to be part of that dashing, flashing crew? So, with the help of his friends, he fashions a flashy costume and is ready to impress... “Hello-o-o everybody! Just call me TROPICAL Terry!” But will life as a tropical fish be everything he dreamed of? With his trademark humour and vibrant art, the award-winning Jarvis tells a heart-warming comedy of self-esteem; a story about learning to love your own scales and take pride in what makes you different.

  • A third, highly-anticipated picture book comedy from the creator of Alan’s Big, Scary Teeth and Mrs Mole, I’m Home!
  • Alan was the winner of the V&A Best Illustrated Book 2017, chosen for Booktrust's 2016/17 Bookstart Treasure Pack (gifted to 750,000 pre-schoolers) and translated into 11 languages worldwide
  • With suspense, drama, visual humour and sound effects aplenty, this is an extremely fun and satisfying storytime read-aloud
