Fish by L.S. Matthews is the story of Tiger and his parents who were humanitarian workers in a war-torn land. They were forced to flee the land for their own safety. Tiger has found a fish in a mud puddle (it will surely suffocate), and he wants to take the fish with them so it will be saved too. Tiger’s parents and the Guide who takes them to safety across the border help him save this small fish. The fish is carried first in a pot, then a bottle, and finally in Tiger’s mouth.

The novel is simple, but it conveys messages of love and compassion and hope. This is important even if it matters to only one being.
