ACHUKA Book of the Day 7 Dec 2021
“The delicate mixed-media illustrations are absolutely stunning: each one is a place to pause and delight in the gorgeous fish in their watery, often bubble filled environment wherein the aquatic plants drift gently to and fro.” BfK 5-Star review
A delightful picture book with facts by the Greenaway Medal-winning author-illustrator Catherine Rayner. The child narrating this story has been given their first ever pet: a tiny fish with shimmering scales and bright beady eyes… Their very own goldfish! Sitting alongside the gentle narrative and dynamic illustrations, the subtext introduces facts about goldfish and their care – some gentle, some funny, some fascinating – making this a perfect choice for first-time owners.
ACHUKA highly recommends a visit to Catherine Rayner’s website:
which is packed with information about how she works, pictures from her studio, examples from her sketchbooks, as well as links to her cards, babywear collections and original artwork.
