The Curious Fish by Elsa Beskow

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.


Elsa Beskow (1874-1953), born Elsa Maartman in Stockholm, was a pioneering author and illustrator of children's books in Sweden—perhaps the best known of all Swedish children's book artists. Her books were inspired by her own childhood experiences, as well as those of her six children.

Central themes were the relationships between children and adults and children's independent initiative. Her books are continually reprinted, and many have become classics.She also illustrated ABC books and songbooks for Swedish schools.

This is the first time this charming Elsa Beskow book has been available in English!
