What could a goldfish ask people for?

The authors are changing the flow of the very famous fairy tale of the Fisherman and the Golden Fish, and seeking an answer to the following question:

What do animals in the 21st-century dream about?

This time the golden fish will say three wishes. What kind of wishes? We won’t reveal that here. The question is whether we can fulfill them?

At the beginning of the story, we get to know the underwater world of the lake and its inhabitants. We meet them at breakfast or when they gossip and enjoy a warm morning. It would seem that their lives go on quite normally, but it soon turns out that many changes are taking place in the water.

No more than a week ago, a carp suffered from indigestion after eating a red plastic straw… And this is not an isolated accident.

People have completely forgotten that this world doesn’t belong only to them and that they should care for it – says the golden fish.

The book can be a great excuse to discuss – at home or at school – how to shape our thinking about nature and how we can prevent environmental pollution on a daily basis.

It stimulates the imagination, teaches empathy for nature and its elements, even of the smallest ones.

This is a wonderfully illustrated book about ecology.
