"'One day last spring, Louis, a butcher, turned into a fish. Silvery scales. Big lips. A tail. A salmon'...Yorinks and Egielski work together as if they were one. Their joint pacing and a variety of verbal and visual viewpoints make Louis the Fish an outstanding and refreshingly unusual picture book." --Starred, School Library Journal
