Two best friends, a minnow and a tadpole, are practically inseparable until the tadpole grows legs and decides to explore the world beyond the pond. When the tadpole, now a frog, returns to tell his friend of the extraordinary things he's seen, the minnow, now a fish, tries to follow in his footsteps, but quickly finds that land is not what he expected. Friendship truly saves the day in this imaginative tale of a fish out of water.
"With his accustomed subtle interplay of graphic wit, clear language, and plain thinking, Lionni wisely proves that a minnow's grasp should not exceed his oxygen supply." --"The New York Times" "A superior book, simple, but eye-catching."" --School Library Journal. " "If the picture book is a new visual art form in our time, Leo Lionni is certain to be judged a master of the genre." --"The New York Times"
