One Smart Fish
Publisher: Red Fox
A small silver fish has done everything he can possibly do in the ocean - he sings, dances and even performs plays, but has never walked upon the land.
So, the fish crafts himself a set of feet and manages to walk on to the beach. A few million years later his idea catches on and fish begin to grow their own feet, eventually evolving into all the species that now populate the earth.
A beautifully illustrated book, published to tie in with Charles Darwin’s bicentenary celebrations. Children will love poring over the colourful spreads and spotting the many varieties of fish that fill the pages.
