Synopsis

The Little Black Fish by Samad Behrangi

Little Black Fish may be small, but he has big questions and a determination to find answers to them. While his fellow fish are too scared to do anything different from their set routine, Little Black Fish swims over the edge of the pool, into the stream and river which will show him much more of the world. He meets wonders and adventures, dangers and beauty. He makes it all the way to the sea, and finds his answers. Even though he doesn't survive to tell his own story, here it is being told to another generation, and the inspiration of it is passed on.

Reviews

The Little Black Fish is among Tiny Owl's first offerings. It's a book is about freedom, confinement, human possibility. Like all the best picture books, it is both simple and profound. Perhaps, says the little black fish, there is more to life, and perhaps the world is more than our stream! It's a message for us all. This is a book that has been read and loved for generations in Iran, and at last the little black fish has swum to our shores. -- David Almond I loved When I Coloured the World by Ahmadreza Ahmadi and also The Little Black Fish by Samad Behrangi, both published by Tiny Owl. The first because it is unexpected, asks and answers questions, is about colour but also philosophy, deep, layered, beautiful. They aren't new books to the world but it's the first time they've been translated into English. -- Jackie Morris, author of The Ice Bear Guardian Children's Books

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
