Little Black Fish may be small, but he has big questions about the world and the determination to find answers to them. Despite his mother's and the other fish warning him of the perils of leaving their safe haven, Little Black Fish swims over the edge of the pool, into the stream towards the river and to the sea. On his adventure Little Black Fish sees many wondrous and beautiful things, encounters danger lurking around every corner and finally is faced with his ultimate challenge...

A beautiful book about freedom, self-determination, courage and power, it's about a little fish who dares to swim against the tide....

Review quote

I loved When I Coloured the World by Ahmadreza Ahmadi and also The Little Black Fish by Samad Behrangi, both published by Tiny Owl. The first because it is unexpected, asks and answers questions, is about colour but also philosophy, deep, layered, beautiful. They aren't new books to the world but it's the first time they've been translated into English. -- Jackie Morris, author of The Ice Bear * Guardian Children's Books *
