One little fish has big dreams. As she meets other friends around the ocean, she tries to imagine what life would be like if she were bigger or faster.
If she could swim like a shark, she'd never be scared. If she were as big as a whale or could glide along like a ray or could spin in the sky like a seagull, how wonderful and different everything would be. But no matter how much she wishes, she is still just the same fish. She asks the other creatures for advice-a whale and an eel and a shark-and discovers that many of them wish to be just like her! Maybe the little fish can find a way to be happy just the way she is.
In this children's story, a fish dreams of being like other creatures-bigger or faster or able to fly-but soon learns to be happy with herself.
