The Curious Fish by Elsa Beskow is a highly imaginative and funny picture book that paints the world from a whole new perspective—from a fish's point of view.
When Flash, a very curious little fish, is caught and held prisoner on dry land, his aunts and uncles are determined to save him. But how can they leave the water to rescue him?
With the help of a wise old frog and a little magic, even the most unlikely wishes can come true.
Children will delight in the wonderful characters of the lake, and in their extraordinary adventure on dry land.
