Description

Fish has a wish. He wishes he were a bird so he could fly. He wishes he were a skunk so he could make a big stink. . . or a snake that says HISSSSSSSSS. But after enjoying a delicious mayfly snack, Fish realizes he's happy exactly as he is. The stunning artwork draws from Asian and classical European wildlife art, and is both elegant and bold. An I Like to Read (R) book. Guided Reading Level E.
