The Fish and the Bird

Kim Thúy’s first picture book, The Fish and the Bird was born when she dreamed that a little girl had forgotten to close the door to her pet bird’s cage. Close by, the goldfish in his bowl tries to strike up a conversation with the bird. But how can they play together with all the differences that set them apart? How might they come to love each other when they have nothing in common? The answer lies somewhere in the spreading of the bird’s wings and the graceful flapping of the fish’s gills.

Written in the form of a poem and superbly illustrated by Rogé, The Fish and the Bird is a tribute to beauty and the differences between us.
