A special 60th anniversary edition of this much-loved Caldecott Honor book, with a foreword from Eric Carle, creator of family favourite The Hungry Caterpillar.
Deep in the sea there lives a school of little 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 brave Swimmy comes along. Swimmy shows his friends that, with ingenuity and team work, they can beat any bully!


"Lionni's elegantly textured, simple yet sophisticated illustrations vividly create the under-the-sea world in this shimmering picture book. Mesmerising and unforgettable."
Guardian, Julia Eccleshare
