Pearl just wants to read her book in peace, but the other fish won't leave her alone!
Pearl can't wait to dive into her new book, but the other sea creatures keep interrupting and nothing she does will keep them away--not hanging signs, not hiding under the seaweed, nor swimming away to a shipwreck. So Pearl plucks up her book and swishes down, down, down for a distraction-free place to think and to read. But just as she settles back in, here comes a light show from the comb jellies! GAH! What's a poor fish got to do for some quiet alone time?
Little ones who struggle to focus in busy environments will relate to Pearl, a grumpy anglerfish, as she searches for quiet in this funny and gentle reminder about establishing healthy boundaries and respecting personal space.
