Within these cultures, a friendship develops between a young fish and a young monkey.The consequences of their friendship come at the expense of not following parental advice and guidance, which makes both Little Monkey and Little Fish suffer consequences. Little Monkey’s love for adventure and his imagined heroism on Little Fish’s back through the deep waters where his kin has never travelled, brings him to the brink of death. Similarly, Little Fish’s tactics to get her friend Monkey to the bottom of the water leads to losing the friendship that developed between them. The story shows how the fish’s foolishness was topped monkey’s wisdom in being able to think quickly and calmly enough to save his life.
