There was a time when happiness began to leak out of the world. Everything dried up. No colour, no food, no smiles – only hunger, sadness and quarrels. One old woman decided that something had to be done, and she heard from the wind about a magical fish that lived in a green-green lake... Told by a Gond storyteller and illustrated by a Gond artist, this book has the wisdom of a folktale. The old woman striding across the pages, the dry world, the lush valley and jewel-like lake, and the stunning fish with its beautifully patterned body create a world of magic and beauty on every page.

Brings the sensuous delicacy of storytelling into a book.
The Magical Fish is an absolute aesthetic delight, simple and profound; moving and brave... a book that should turn into a treasured family heirloom. The Magical Fish is that you can hear the story as you read it. The artwork by Shakuntala Kushram is nothing short of stunning, and not just because it is in the traditional art form of the Bhitti Chitra... There is something fantastic about the way that the art and words of this story weave in and out of each other with such ease and simplicity. Goodbooks.in
