9781565548503: Fish Out of Water, A

A bird and a fish, against all odds, have fallen in love. Unfortunately, their families object because, in order for the two to be together, one must give up everything they have ever known. It all works out beautifully as they find middle ground with a little help from a kind mermaid and a friendly eagle.

About the Author:

Wesley Eure is no stranger to scripted lines. For fifteen years he's starred in television, stage, and big screen productions and now brings his dramatic and comedic experience to life in his first children's book. Many of Eure's fans will remember his eight-year award-winning role as the rebellious, romantic Michael Horton on NBC's

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 3-A clown fish and a parrot meet and fall in love. Against the advice of their families, they spend their lives together ("-each learned to live in the other's world"). It's a nice sentiment concerning relationships, but not practical for birds and fish, especially a parrot from the forest and a fish from a coral reef. The book is an unusual collaboration between an actor and some students of graphic design from Meredith College. The cut-paper collage illustrations are competently done, but the book design, combining elements of rebus with varying fonts and word shapes, is distracting and difficult to read when black words are placed over dark blue pictures. The use of word art is much more effective in Phyllis Root's One Duck Stuck (Candlewick, 1998) or in Denise Fleming's In the Small, Small Pond (Holt, 1993).-Martha Link, Louisville Free Public Library, KY

Book Description Pelican Publishing Co, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Could it be true? Could a fish and bird have fallen in love? This unique collaboration between Dragon Tales co-creator Wesley Eure and the Meredith College Art Department uses simple colorful shapes to illustrate this eye-catching book. When a berry slips from the birds beak and falls into the water below for the fish to eat, the two begin a friendship that celebrates their differences. The bird teaches the fish to sing, the fish fetches seaweed for the birds nest. Although they soon fall in love, all the neighboring animals and even their own families are skeptical, and worry that there is no way the two can be together. A friendly mermaid with magical powers appears, and offers to grant their wish to be together. But even the mermaids magic does not solve their problem. It all ends well, though, as the bird and the fish figure out a way to be together. Young readers will love the vivid illustrations that accompany this new, yet timeless tale.
