Little Fish tells the charming story of a fish finding its way back home to the reef, through five spectacular pop-up scenes. Readers will delight in being able to follow the little fish swimming in a world packed with brightly colored corals, clams and fish, through a seaweed forest; under the eye of a greedy-looking grouper; and quickly past a menacing shark, and all the way back home again.
Told in a lulling rhyme reminiscent of the waves, and illustrated by Emily Rand in a playful, patterned style, Little Fish is an eye-popping story that celebrates the wonder of ocean life. Produced as a carousel format, which stands up independently when its cover boards are tied back together, this wonderful book will be enjoyed by anyone who experiences its unique, immersive artistry.
A reef in the round provides both home and hazards for a small orange goby. The layering of the die-cut characters against their environment makes for pleasingly three-dimensional…tableaux.
