The Magical Wishing Fish

USD $16.57

by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm; Illustrated by Loek Koopmans'Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!' 

One day a poor fisherman catches a fish that says he's an enchanted prince and begs to be set free. But when the fisherman tells his wife the story, she demands that the fish grants a wish in return. 

The magical wishing fish grants them a new house, riches and power. But as his wife's requests become more and more extreme, the kindly fisherman starts to wish only that they were as happy as they'd been when they were poor. 

This classic Brothers Grimm tale of being careful what you wish for is beautifully brought to life with soft, detailed illustrations by Loek Koopmans. 

A wonderful new adaptation that brings light-hearted humour and warmth to the traditional morality tale of the fisherman and his wife; a story retold throughout the world.

Recommended by the publisher for 3-6 yrs, but here at Nest, we find even older children and adults are delighted by this wise tale.  We might suggest 5 years and up.

Hardcover, 24 pages with colour illustrations.  254 x 210 mm.

Floris Books, 2018.
