A thought-provoking tale by the renowned ‘Amazon Child’ Sueli Menezes.
A little boy of the Amazon goes on his first fishing trip with his grandad. For hours they drift silently among the water-lilies until there, shining in their net, is a huge fish! But Grandad says he must be put back into the dark river. The boy has to know why, and Grandad gently explains how the boy’s love of fishing cannot outweigh everything else.
In this story of a boy’s growing awareness of the importance of living in harmony with nature, the mood is captured by Annika Siems’s bold illustrations.
