Description

Product Description

Caldecott Honor winning artist Rachel Isadora brings another fabulous fairy tale to brilliant life with her stunning collages. The Brothers Grimm story of the kind fisherman who catches an enchanted fish, and his greedy wife who always wants more, is perfect for these "give-me" times.

Rachel Isadora''s captivating collage-style artwork, featuring the African landscape and the increasingly turbulent ocean, provides a wonderful new backdrop for this classic story.

From Booklist

As she has with previous books, The Princess and the Pea and The Twelve Dancing Princesses (both, 2007), Isadora takes stories from the Brothers Grimm and adapts them for a generically African setting. The fisherman frees a flounder and gets a wish. Then his wife makes him continually up the ante: her new hut must become a castle; then she wants to be king, emperor, pope! The highly patterned collage pictures don’t really capture the scope of her ambitions, which seem more European than African, but their shaped and sculptured beauty is arresting. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper

I have been listening to this story for three days now. I love the message of be careful what you wish for. This imaging of the fisherman and his wife has wonderful designs and fantastic art. I look forward to analyzing this and comparing it to the original version of the Grimm Brothers tale. This is an awesome book.

Great old tale with an original and fresh presentation. The story was always one of my favorites and now the illustrations are too! It is about time someone came along and presented the old, standby fairy tales in a new light. Ms Isadora has done it! My hat off to her and the people who published this book. I will check out her others.

Great story with a solid lesson about greed. I''ve used this book with my students in speech therapy. Good repeating refrains for story retelling activities, great vocabulary. I love Rachel Isadora''s art work and use of color to communicate the mood of the book.
