Yellow Belly is a narrative about Luke and Jackie and the amazing discoveries they make. It all starts when they rescue a fish after a flood. Not only is the new fish female, but also the new fish, her new mate, and their babies turn out to be automatic trough cleaners. The story is told in dialogue and narrative.
The story has a problem solution structure. The text is composed of a variety of sentence types. Illustrations support the text but not all events are illustrated. Speech balloons appear in the art. The book concludes with a two-page spread that tells how to write a narrative.
Some words may require clarification: subsided, battered, stagnant, gills, desperately, oxygen, straddling, translucent, trough, transferred, pensively, hatchlings, replicas, algae. Simile: like a fish in a net, as clean as a whistle. Metaphor: a jigsaw of cracked mud.
