Once upon a time, there lived three mean and greedy brothers called Gruff. They fish and fish until Poverty Bay is empty, and so resolve to find somewhere else to catch their fish. But watch out, Minke Whale, the Guardian of the Ocean isn't happy and the neither are the townspeople of Poverty Bay! This brilliantly conceived text is based loosely on The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

Author Biography - Ben Galbraith
Ben Galbraith was born in a small town called Gisborne on the East Coast of New Zealand in 1980. After High School, Ben left beach life to go to Design School in Wellington majoring in Illustration. After graduation, he moved back to Gisborne where he lives with his mother and brother. Now he works at a Printing House as a Graphic Designer, whilst working freelance on his illustration career. Fishing Brothers Gruff is Ben's first picture book and he absolutely loved writing and illustrating his own story. He likes scanning textures into the computer to use in his artwork. At Design school, he got into trouble for scanning real, smelly dead fish! Other unusual facts include the fact that Ben is colour blind! All his drawings from when he was a child have purple skies and all self potraits have green freckles! Ben loves the ocean and as well as being a mad keen surfer he is also fascinated by fish!
