I thought it might be helpful to provide an overview of the three kinds of Pout-Pout Fish books, since each kind differs from the others in length and format.
The three kinds are: 1) full-length adventure stories; 2) mini-adventures; and 3) novelty items.
There are currently four full-length adventure stories: The Pout-Pout Fish; The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark; The Pout-Pout Fish Goes to School; and The Not Very Merry Pout-Pout Fish. Each of these books is a picture book story meant for toddlers, preschoolers, early elementary, and beyond, and are each about 500 or 600 words long. They come in a hardcover format (approximately 10" x 10", with hard covers and paper pages); two of them (the original and the Big-Big Dark) also come in board book format (about 6.5" x 6.5", with thick board pages). The board book versions of these stories are not shortened or abridged from the hard cover.
The mini-adventures are much shorter and simpler than the full-length adventure stories. There are currently four of them: Smile, Pout-Pout Fish; Sweet Dreams, Pout-Pout Fish; Kiss, Kiss, Pout-Pout Fish; and Trick or Treat, Pout-Pout Fish. They're twelve pages long with just a few words per page - no more than around 50 words total. They come in board book format -- they're the same size as the full-length adventure board books, but much thinner due to fewer pages.
The novelty items are a variety of activity books, including a lift-the-flap book, an alphabet and numbers workbook, a sticker book, and a touch-and-feel book. Word length and format varies.
