"Isabel Plum: Icthyologist" is a book about a precocious and spoiled little girl named Isabel Plum. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. Krantz hit it out of the ballpark with this story. Isabel Plum is a sassy diva, full of spunk and attitude. Oh boy! when she doesn't get her way the tantrum that erupts from her is full blown. Used to getting everything she wants to excess, when she doesn't get the pet she desires, but a fish instead she doesn't want to have anything to do with it. Isabel has a change of heart when she notices the guppy's health takes a turn for the worse.
Full of wit, whimsy, and colorful prose this book is a must read. The illustrations add character to the book. Drawn in a style reminiscent of children's drawings or art work the illustrations were a nice element that added cuteness to the story. I would definitely recommend it for young readers. I think children especially little girls will love this story.
