Acclaimed children's author Kara LaReau was inspired to write this story after reading an article about school bullies. Ugly Fish is a big, mean and ugly fish. And because he's big and mean, he scares all the other little fish so that he can keep the fish tank all to himself. Ugly Fish enjoys swimming through his driftwood tunnel and eating his special briny food, and he won't share with anyone else. But when an even bigger, meaner fish shows up in the bowl, Ugly Fish doesn't feel so fearless anymore.

"From opening salvo to closing thought, Ezra Knight takes delight in his performance of UGLY FISH. He's as cocky and confident as any bully might be, even one in a fish tank. In a voice full of bravado, he tells off, and then eats, every new fish that arrives in his realm. But maybe a bit of companionship would be welcome after all. . . . Ugly Fish is not quite so quick or bold when Shiny Fish arrives. If only Ugly Fish had developed more skills in sizing up acquaintances and initiating friendships. In an afterword, Kara La Reau shares her inspiration for writing this story. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
