One Wonderful Fine Day for a Sculpin Named Sam by
Al Pittman, Shawn O’Hagan
The 30th anniversary of Al Pittman’s classic children’s story. Sam, the colourful sculpin, is different. And on one warm summer day, he swims through an underwater community teeming with lively fish of all shapes and sizes. But Sam doesn’t look like anyone else. He feels lonely. Until he finds Sara, his perfect match, in a world where everyone is different in their own way. Al Pittman’s classic story, vibrantly illustrated by Shawn O’Hagan, is a perennial favourite. One Wonderful Fine Day for a Sculpin Named Sam is available in a new edition for a whole new generation of readers.
