Through this charming story, children will become aware of the growing problem of trash polluting the ocean. Fish highlights the issues with a simple and engaging illustrated narrative and also suggests a solution in the form of recycling.
All Finn wants is to catch a nice, tasty fish for his dinner, but no matter how hard he tries all he seems to catch at the end of his fishing line is other people's trash. The longer he spends out on the ocean, the more crazy objects he collects! Finn and his dog Skip go home each day with a full boat, but empty tummies.
It isn't long before Finn finds a way to reuse and recycle everything he has collected. Pretty soon he makes enough money to make a tasty dinner every day, and under his care, the ocean becomes clean, bright, and full of fish again!
About the Author
Brendan Kearney lives and works by the sea in the Southwest of England with his little dog Crumble. He has loved drawing since he started scribbling as a child and feels very lucky to be able to draw for a living. He particularly enjoys drawing animals (Especially sea life!) and making up stories.
The idea for Fish was born from a fascination of the ocean and the animals that live within it. Living by the sea himself, he is constantly reminded of the threats our oceans face, pollution being just one of them. He hopes that this book might cause us to think twice about the amount of rubbish we throw away and what we can do to reduce our own waste. He loves playing guitar and eating biscuits but absolutely hates slugs.
