Fish has a wish. He wishes he were a bird so he could fly. He wishes he were a skunk and made a big stink... or a snake that says HISSSSSSSS! 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.

But when a mayfly lands on the water, Fish eats it in one bite and declares: “That was so good!…I wish to stay a fish.” Part of the publisher’s I Like to Read series, the book's eye-catching artwork will fascinate young readers (and adults).
