Nemo and his father, Marlin. lived underwater. They were clownfish.
Because they were clownfish they were small. But the other fish were
Marlin was scared of the big fish so he always kept Nemo close to him,
tucked safely inside their little home.
But today was Nemo's first day of school! He was very excited.
Mr Ray. the science teacher, took Nemo's class on a field trip. Nemo and
his friends sneaked away and swam to the really deep water, Marlin
chased after Nemo and scolded him! Nemo was angry that his father had
embarrassed him in front of his friends so he swan way up to the surface
of the ocean until he touched a boat!
Then Nemo got caught!
"Daddy!" cried Nemo
"Nemo!" cried Marlin
Nemo was taken away in the boat. Marlin tried to save his son, but the
boat sped away so fast it soon disappeared. Nemo was gone. But Marlin
would not give up. The only thing on his mind now was finding Nemo.
Looking for help, Marlin swam into all sorts of fish. They pushed him
and shoved him. Soon Marlin was knocked aside.
One friendly fish named Dory swam down to see if Marlin was okay. She
was a little bit silly, and she couldn't remember very much, but she was
happy to help Marlin.
Together, Dory and Marlin met a shark. Marlin was scared! But Dory
thought it was very nice of the shark to invite them to a party.
The party was for sharks who were trying not to eat fish. Luckily, they
did not eat Marlin and Dory.
Marlin kept searching for Nemo. He and Dory found a scuba mask that
belonged to the diver who had taken Nemo. They swam down into a very
deep, dark place to get it. Then they was a light.
The light was attached to a mean anglerfish! But it helped Dory read an
address written on the mask. Then the two friends swam away before the
anglerfish could eat them! Now Marlin knew where to find Nemo: 42
Wallaby Way, Sydney. Dory was so excited that she repeated the address
over and over.
Next Marlin and Dory saw some moonfish. The moonfish made funny shapes.
They pointed toward 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney.
Some friendly turtles gave Marlin and Dory a ride. Marlin told him of
his search for Nemo, and the news spread across the ocean!
Even Nemo heard a bout it at 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. He was very
excited! He wanted to escape from the fish tank where he was trapped.
Nemo's new friends were excited too. The little clownfish was bursting
with pride. He had the bravest dad in the sea!
Then a whale swallowed Marlin and Dory! Dory told Marlin he didn't need
to worry. And she was right. The whale took them as close as he could to
42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. In fact he took them all the way to Sydney
At last a pelican named Nigel helped Marlin and Dory go straight to 42
Wallaby Way, Sydney. A little girl grabbed Nemo. Marlin couldn't save
Marlin was sad. He thought he lost his son again.
But Nemo had escaped! Dory found him.
Father and son were overjoyed. And when they finally returned home, both
Nemo and Marlin were heroes.
