This book is great, my little boy loved it. A really fun story, he liked it when the hairy scary monster got his haircut and he was just a seahorse. Would recommend this book.

A fun story about Barry who first appears in another lol. This time the friends are playing hide and seek when they find something scary. This was an enjoyable story with a silly ending. We have this on audio tape as well but it's not as good as the book. The pictures help to tell the story quite a lot.

My daughter loves this book as she thinks it's hilarious.  It's about a fish named Barry who is playing hide and seek with his friends.  One of his friends is scared by a hairy monster; Barry gives the monster a haircut and it turns out to be a beautiful seahorse.  They all decide to use the hair to play pirates. It shares a great message and I explained to my daughter that everything is not what it seems, and that the scary monster wasn't really scary but a friend.  It has fantastic illustrations which are bright and colourful and the characters are cute and funny. I would definitely recommend this book.

We love Barry the Fish with Fingers, this book didn't disappoint!! Barry as usual, was the star of the book and showed that you shouldn't be afraid of things that look different!  Barry 'tamed' the monster and they end up having a fantastic party together!

This is my little girls favourite book! She loves the colourful bold pictures and the friendly characters. I find the idea of a fish having "fish fingers" rather bizarre but it is hilarious to a 3 year old!  Teaches about being kind to others and that things aren't always what you first think.   Good length for bedtime.

A brilliant book for kids.  Bright colourful illustrations and a funny story with a lovely meaning.  Barry the fish is playing with his friends when one of them gets scared by a "monster". Barry bravely finds the "hairy scarey monster" and realises it's just a friendly seahorse who needs a haircut. Barry snips his hair and they all become friends and have a party.

This book is still a favourite with my boys aged 6 and 4.

Another funny Barry the fish with fingers story. We enjoyed the hide and seek game at the start. My daughter was a bit worried about the hairy scary monster but when he turned out to be friendly we were able to read the story again with more enjoyment!

My children love Barry with his fish finger hands! This story shows you how you shouldn't judge on appearances and my children love it when the monster gets his haircut.
