Annotation: The gorgeous, Caldecott Honor-winning tale of a very clever fish by beloved picture book creator Leo Lionni.

Deep in the sea lives a happy school of fish. Their watery world is full of wonders, but there is also danger, and the little fish are afraid to come out of hiding . . . until Swimmy comes along. Swimmy shows his friends how—with ingenuity and team work—they can overcome any danger.

Winner of the 1964 Caldecott Honor, this beloved tale of a brave little fish has been a favorite to generations of readers. To celebrate Swimmy's fiftieth anniversary, we are issuing a handsome special edition hardcover that includes a bonus poster.

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.
