Poor Little Guy, by Elanna Allen - Animated picture book

This delightful book is funny, beautifully illustrated (with gorgeous hand-lettering that morphs into the images throughout the book), and has a priceless surprise ending. All of these attributes together made it top of the list for our next animated book. Yes, we animated it quickly so forgive the little gritty bits where you can tell I was nursing a baby and getting "help" from a 4 year old in our 2 hour project. . .  Purchase this wonderful book here and follow author / illustrator Elana Allen on Instagram here.

"What do you do when you're so tiny that the bigger ocean creatures think you might even taste adorable?

An itsy-bitsy, glasses-wearing fish is minding his own business when a playful (and hungry) octopus snatches him right up. Luckily, this poor little guy is not quite as innocent as he seems…and he has a BIG surprise up his sleeve!

Told with wit, a wink, and a delightfully dark sense of humor, Poor Little Guy celebrates the very smallest...and all of their giant victories. Hand this cute but mighty book to fans of Bob Shea and Dan Krall."
