When his friend, the tadpole, becomes a frog and leaves the pond to explore the world, the little fish decides that maybe he doesnt have to remain in the pond either. *Author: Lionni, Leo *Publication Date: 2005/01/11 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Grade Level: 2-3 *Language: English *Depth: 0.25 *Width: 9.00 *Height: 11.00
From the Publisher:
A tadpole and a minnow are underwater friends, but the tadpole grows legs and explores the world beyond the pond and then returns to tell his fish friend about the new creatures he sees. The fish imagines these creatures as bird-fish and people-fish and cow-fish and is eager to join them.


From the Trade Paperback edition.
Annotation:
In this story, a minnow wants to follow a tadpole, but the tadpole becomes a frog and migrates to the land. In the end the minnow learns that he's happier being himself than imitating others.
Author Bio
Leo Lionni
Although Leo Lionni is a popular author and illustrator of picture books, many people are surprised to find that he did not write his first book until he was a grandfather. Lionni and his family lived in many different places during his childhood including Brussels, Philadelphia, and Genoa. He attended the University of Zurich and married Nora Maffi. In 1939 he, his wife, and their two children moved to Philadelphia where Lionni worked for an advertising agency and was also the head of the graphics design department of the Parsons School of Design. In 1959, at age 50, he returned to Italy. His first picture book, LITTLE BLUE AND LITTLE YELLOW was originally created as a story to amuse his grandchildren during a tedious train ride. SWIMMY, one of Lionni's personal favorites, was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1964.
