View at publishers website

A small girl encounters a sad fish in the ocean. She goes to the bookstore and sees little fish trapped inside books. Awake in her bed at night she puts two and two together and comes into action.

The picture book is about releasing animals from books, but can just as well be read as a metaphor for releasing anything that is kept in boxes. Animals, people, dreams — Especially if it requires secretly climbing out of your bedroom window and breaking into a bookstore at night.
