One amazing day, Jack catches a Magic Fish… “If you free me,” says the fish, “I’ll grant your dearest wish!” Jack and his wife Liz can’t believe their luck when the Magic Fish gives them a pretty little cottage, but soon they are asking for more… and more – even a palace. And they forget to say thank you! Now the sea rages and the Magic Fish is angry! Find out what happens next, in this spellbinding tale about the dangers of being too greedy! This brilliantly colourful retelling of a traditional tale, known in one form or another around the world, is written and illustrated by Jessica Souhami. Among her many books are Sausages, Foxy! and The Little, Little House and, most recently, Honk Honk, Hold Tight.
"Souhami gives 'The Fisherman and His Wife' a hopeful twist. Expressive collage artwork will engage readers...A pleasingly solid retelling." -Kirkus
