Did you hear about little Amy Scott? She got a goldfish for her birthday and then just threw it in the ocean! That doesn't seem right. Outraged, Sherman and Sadie will have to go save little Ellsworth (every fish deserves a proper name) on their own. With a crew of not altogether helpful monkeys, the duo sets out on the high seas, encountering sharks, a whale, and a giant squid. Can they find little Ellsworth before it's too late? Reminding us just a bit of Quentin Blake's artwork, Matthew Cordell's ink and watercolor illustrations bring a madcap energy to this delightfully zany tale for readers 4 to 8.
