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

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
