A boy and his dog embark on a fishing journey.
Their first catch of the day: a big fat letter F.
Their second? A slippery I.
After an epic journey beneath the lake's surface, they find what they came for-- a FISH, along with some unanticipated menace from a few other letters.

This clever, wordless picture book, by a popular New Yorker cartoonist, is filled with charm and heart and will have no problem swimming its way into the hearts of young readers.

Liam Francis Walsh is a cartoonist, writer and illustrator who is originally from Wisconsin. His cartoons frequently appear in The New Yorker. Fish is Liam's first children's book and his first book for Roaring Brook Press. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Editorial Reviews

"A full-bodied story with an economy of style, this will be particularly rewarding for emerging readers."-Kirkus Reviews, starred"This essentially wordless story uses visual details and letters to create a gripping story and a clever word game. A strong addition." -School Library Journal"With an old-fashioned palette of blue, black, and red, these clever cartoon-influenced illustrations will hook young readers."-Booklist"Walsh works in a deliciously retro style evocative of both vintage screen prints and the work of Hergé, and his graphic skills and visually storytelling are highly polished."-Publishers Weekly"The pacing is spot-on, with full pages, spreads, and occasional panel art all working together toreel in the laughs, making this more than just another fish story."-Horn Book
