This is Peter.
Peter loves fish and fishing.
One fine day at the beach he catches a strange,
little fish. The little fish has a round body and a
long, long nose. On his head he wears a little
crown. ‘Why are you wearing that little crown?’,
‘I don’t know,’ cries the little fish. And I also
lost my way,’ he cries louder. ‘Oh, hush come
here,' says Peter 'I will help you.’
Suddenly another little fish pops up from
the deep sea. Joyfully he says 'Hello, I am
Emanuel. But what is the matter with you?'
Softly the grey little fish says 'I am Enos,'
and I am unhappy and lost.'
'Come on,' says Emanuel 'Let's see what we can find.'
And the three of them dive into the sea.
On their way down they meet some big fish.
It looks like they're floating. Emanuel asks,
'Have you maybe seen fish that look like him
around here?' and he points at Enos, the
unhappy grey fish. 'Yeah sure, quite a lot.
They are that way,' answer the floating fish.
Will they meet other fish that look like Enos? And will that lead to Enos finding his home? If you would like to see how this story ends, you can pre-order the picture book in English below.
