Annotation: Two best friends, a minnow and a tadpole, are practically inseparable until the tadpole grows legs and decides to explore the world beyond the pond. When the tadpole, now a frog, returns to tell his friend of the extraordinary things he’s seen, the minnow, now a fish, tries to follow in his footsteps, but quickly finds that land is not what he expected. Friendship truly saves the day in this imaginative tale of a fish out of water.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Spring)
This fiftieth-anniversary edition of the 1964 Caldecott Honor Book includes a new "tribute from Eric Carle" and a poster. Little black fish Swimmy, lone survivor in a school of red ones, devises an ingenious scheme for protecting a new school of fish friends. Lionni's series of astonishingly beautiful seascapes are full of undulating watery nuances of shape, pattern, and color.
