Publisher's Summary

My story starts the day that my parents told me we must leave our adopted home forever. Because of the soldiers and the drought, we barely had enough to eat and we could no longer stay to help the people in our village.

Right before we were leaving I saw a fish in a small brown puddle, and I knew I had to take it with me. The journey would be hard, to cross the mountains get to the safety of the border and the people there who could help us. Yet when I put the fish in the pot I never realized what we would have to face. It never occurred to me to leave Fish behind.

A subtle and sophisticated exploration of life, the strength of humanity, and survival in an unforgiving world, Fish is a story that will teach those who doubt that, when hope is almost extinguished, miracles can happen.

Critic Reviews

"The simple innocence of Tiger's first-person narration enriches this tale....The pace is exciting and filled with crises and adventure." (School Library Journal)

Awsome story

It was very great and I liked it a lot.
And I thought it was sad that the guide died at the end too.
But at least now he's with his family
