Three Little Dolphins and The Big Bad Shark

My Finny Fin Fin, the children's book written by Judi Chesshir is absolutely adorable. It is filled with cute illustrations and an accompanying audio that adds the perfect finishing touch with the voices of the dolphins and the big bad shark. I believe all kids are fascinated with life 'under the ocean' and enjoy seeing the creatures and colorful fish that occupy it. If not, they will be 'hooked' when they see this book and read Judi Chesshir's creative...more

You see a lot of reinventing of old stories, but none that compare to Judi Chesshir's book, My Finny Fin Fin. The classic tale of the Three Little Pigs has come back to life in the ocean, with a new twist on the little pigs. Dolphins! And it's not a big, bad wolf that's after the dolphins, but a huge shark. Vivid pictures, along with the narration that you can download, makes this book a wonderful read for both a child and and adult. Very cute and fun! I highly recommend it for any child.
My Finny Fin Fin is an intriguing tale, told by Judi Chesshir that will take your child on a great adventure. The reader will go on a journey that is captivating, colorful and full of wisdom. If you want your child to develop a love of books, while learning at the same time, this is the perfect book for you! The illustrations are beautiful; the audio is a wonderful way to follow along with the story and is full of personality and charm.

My Finny Fin Fin is such a fun read for little ones. Taking them deep into the ocean to see a story unfold for three little dolphins as they leave home and out on their own. The audio file that accompanies the book takes it to a new level with the scary voice of the shark. The author has done an exceptional job of putting a new spin on an old favorite and will be enjoyed by all for a long time to come!

What a spin on The Three Little Pigs! This is a great children's book about three dolphins and their new homes. Their danger lies in the shark that is out to get them. This is a great addition to any children's library!

I'm actually the author of this book and I had a great time writing this story for my 2nd grade class. This book is available in paperback, CD, Nook & Kindle versions and can get special hardcover editions and 3D editions from the author. Just contact me here:

In “My Finny, Fin, Fin”, Judi Chesshir tells a fun story of three little dolphins and their quest to live on their own. The pictures add a lot to the story too making it all that much more enjoyable. Listening to the audio e-Live download while I read the story was truly charming. The shark’s voice was great! Children will just eat this story up!

Judi Chesshir puts a whole new spin on the tale of The Three Little Pigs with her book My Finny Fin Fin. Three dolphin brothers each attempt to choose a good home, but only one chooses wisely and survives being eaten by the Big Bad Shark. Beautifully written, and beautifully illustrated, this book is a must have for all those in love with children’s fairy tales.

Author of - Choices: When Divorce Happens to You and Your Children

My Finny Fin Fin is a colorful, creative take off of the famous children’s story, The Three Little Pigs. In this story, three little dolphins set out to the wide ocean to find a home for themselves. The first one finds a home that will feed his stomach. The second one finds a home where he can have fun. The third one finds a home that will keep him safe. I wonder which dolphin will survive...more
