An important story about preserving the environment, and how we pass on our awareness of nature to future generations.

It’s also a story about fatherhood, how in some fish species the father cares after the young.

Poignant art helps tell this story with lush illustrations of the Amazon and the creatures who live there.

A little boy of the Amazon is excited to go on his first fishing trip with his grandad. He wants to catch the biggest fish! After hours of drifting among the water-lilies, at last they capture a huge Arowana. But, as Grandad explains, sometimes catching the biggest fish isn’t the best way to preserve the river’s bounty. This is a story of environmental awareness that also touches on fatherhood and the importance of living in harmony with nature. Perfect for our times.
