The gorgeous, Caldecott Honor-winning tale of a very clever fish by beloved picture book creator Leo Lionni.

 

Deep in the sea lives a happy school of fish. Their watery world is full of wonders, but there is also danger, and the little fish are afraid to come out of hiding . . . until Swimmy comes along. Swimmy shows his friends how--with ingenuity and team work--they can overcome any danger.

 

Winner of the 1964 Caldecott Honor, this beloved tale of a brave little fish has been a favorite to generations of readers. To celebrate Swimmy's fiftieth anniversary, we are issuing a handsome special edition hardcover that includes a bonus poster.


"With his accustomed subtle interplay of graphic wit, clear language, and plain thinking, Lionni wisely proves that a minnow's grasp should not exceed his oxygen supply." -- The New York Times

 

A superior book, simple, but eye-catching. --School Library Journal.

 

"If the picture book is a new visual art form in our time, Leo Lionni is certain to be judged a master of the genre." -- The New York Times

 

LEO LIONNI wrote and illustrated more than forty picture books in his lifetime, including four Caldecott Honor Books-- Inch by Inch, Swimmy, Frederick, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. He died in 1999 at the age of 89.
