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.

Comments about Fish is Fish:
What a dreamer! Don't we all go to our special place at some time or other.....thank goodness his friend was close at hand. These are all concepts and ideas that little people identify with. It makes fun reading and great discussion afterwards...
"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"
