The big fish
A little island inhabited by fishermen, the sun, the waves. The little boats quietly fish the high seas, but one day a big boat comes to steal all the fishes to the fishermen. The poor fishermen are desperate, till a frightening storm will abandon a big, big fish on the beach: once more the nature has won...
Aoi Huber-Kono writes and draws a tender and fascinating story, where the soft and winding stroke and non-conventional use of colours create a mysterious and bewitching atmosphere. The creative make-up by Max Huber, inspired by calligrammes, follows the waves’ rythm, the spaces and moves suggested by drawings, and generates emotions in the reader.
The big fish, published for the first time in 1968, it’s a book that continues to talk and touch contemporary children and adults.
