Review quote

"An exquisite picture book." --"School Library Journal" (Starred Review) "Each of his [Lionni's] books is self-consistent, a world unto itself. . . . Here is Swimmy: a tiny, insignificant fish in the vast and wide ocean who is ingenious enough to fend off the big, bad bully." --Eric Carle, author of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"
