Friendships can occur in many forms; just ask Tyler and Marty in Tyler the Fish and Marty the Sturgeon by Meaghan Fisher. Tyler was swimming with his friend, Jimmy, in the beautiful waters of Lake Erie when they encountered Marty. Initially both Tyler and Jimmy thought they were in danger when they were approached by Marty, but then things changed. In life, whenever we encounter what appear to be obstacles, remember that nothing is always as it seems. This is a colorful and expressive children’s book told by Meaghan Fisher with rich illustrations by Sandra Burns. The story of Tyler the Fish and Marty the Sturgeon will bring satisfaction to any child as they begin to read and explore the different types of marine life in the book.

I enjoyed the book and envisioned myself reading to a group of children at a library or children’s event. As I read each word and saw the pictures, I begin to become immersed in an underwater world. With the imagination of children, I know that they will become as interested in the marine life and the story as I did. This children’s book is something that will encourage a child to want to read because they will want to understand and embrace the words on the page, and merge these with the pictures. If you want a beautifully illustrated and fun story for your child, get a copy of Tyler the Fish and Marty the Sturgeon by Meaghan Fisher to add to your library.
