Fish on a Walk

Foreword Review — Spring 2012

Jealous–Accepting. Same–Different. Tricky–Truthful. So reads the provocatively spare text accompanying lush illustrations of all manner of animals doing extraordinary things. Why is a gerbil looking out a train window? Do hedgehogs love the beach? The potential stories to be interpreted from these intricate, silly scenes are endless! The book’s lovely premise encourages original storytelling and the incorporation of personal experience on the part of its listeners. Ages three and up.
