Goldeye and Funnyfin swim through the ocean in search of the Magnificent Fish. Along the way they meet quirky characters like Octavia the Octopus and sharpen their problem-solving skills on a string of surprises, such as the swordfish who can only say "mphmmm." This chuckle-full chapter book is about friendship and community, adventure and courage. For children ages 4-9 and the young at heart.Review -
There's something about this simple story and its delicate watercolour illustrations that catches and holds the attention of young children... In the end, as in all good folk tales, Goldeye and Funnyfin find more than they were looking for, not just a house, but friendship, community, and home. Sharon Kahan's images of these animals and their world are imaginative and engaging, with soft colours and swirling shapes that encourage children's imaginations. - Alison Hayford, SPG Book Review.Review #2 -
What a treasure! Delightful stories, gorgeous illustrations, great for reading with kids of any age. I loved the style of the pictures, and really liked the formatting for the book...The standing octopus on page 24 was my favourite, although the fish in sunglasses on page 44 were a pretty close second! - Jaime Traynor, KidsFirst Regina.
