When Manu rescues a tiny fish from the stream, he has no idea what lies in store. Soon, the world is in danger and only the fish can help...
The Usborne The Fish That Talked is a retelling of an ancient Indian poem, Mahabharata, and is reminiscent of the great flood, Noah's Ark, and the earth's renewal under benevolent care. The original poem is 18 books long and over 2,000 years old.
Usborne's The Fish That Talked is retold by Rosie Dickins and illustrated by Graham Philpot.

About Usborne Books
In the 1970's, it was clear that children were being entertained, not educated, by television and comic books. Peter Usborne recognized that books would have to change in order to compete for children's attention. By incorporating concepts used by comics and TV, as well as consulting with educators, Usborne books were born.
Usborne and its sister company, Kane Miller - subdivisions of Educational Development Corporation Publishing, are designed to draw children in through colorful illustrations and photos, and often use humor to deliver information in short, concise paragraphs aimed to hold their interest. Research shows that when a child's interest is held, they will continue to pursue and retain knowledge.
