Description

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 go to his rescue? With the help of a wise old frog and a little magic, even the most unlikely wishes can come true.

This highly imaginative and funny picture book paints the world from a whole new perspective -- from a fish’s point of view. Children will delight in the wonderful characters of the lake, and in their extraordinary adventure on dry land.

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