Description - The Little Boy and the Big Fish by Max Velthuijs

Every child who goes fishing dreams of catching the biggest, most beautiful fish in the world . . . The hero of this tender, glowingly illustrated story catches a fish so large and splendid that he takes it home and puts it in the bathtub so we can keep it forever. He picks flowers from the fields to make his fish feel at home. He reads it stories about animal friends. But the fish is sad - and because the boy likes his fish so much and wants it to be happy, he learns a real lesson about love. Max Velthuijs, one of Holland's foremost graphic artists, has created lovely, bright coloured pictures that are at once realistic and full childlike fantasy. The Little Boy and the Big Fish is a memorable book, jolly, sad, and wise, with the honest emotion that children will recognise as their own. AGES: 4 to 8 AUTHOR: Max Velthuijs (1923 2005) was born in The Hague, Netherlands. As a toddler, he loved to draw and make up his own stories. After studying painting and graphic design, he went on to become one of the most famous illustrators for children in The Netherlands and received many awards. In 2004, he received the Hans Christian Andersen Award for illustrators.
