Fire Fish by Davy Liu

5 Stars.

A highly recommended read...

Fire Fish by Davy Liu is a beautifully written and illustrated children's book, about three adorable little fish on a quest to find their missing parents. Along the way they encounter many new adventures and meet many new sea creatures some friendly and some very deadly. One of the first things that struck me about this book is the absolutely breathtaking beauty of the illustrations. The second was that the story seemed somehow familiar and when I reached the end of the story I realised that it was inspired by the book of Exodus and told from the prospective of the sea creatures...

The timeless story and gorgeous artwork ensures this book will be a favorite with parents and children alike...

In this golden fable, three little fish, Sarai, RaaOn and Sesom, dare to embark on a grand and dangerous quest to find their hearts' desire. Their journey is inspired by the legend of the Fire Fish, mystical masters of the Bright Beyond.
Never more than a fin-flip away from deadly danger, they tumble from one breathtaking exploit to another, using the power of "the call" to guide them through a world bigger than they ever imagined.
A story of mythic power. There is a surprising twist to this fish tale that teaches timeless truth and ensures its future as a fireside classic.
