From internationally bestselling author Oz ("A Tale of Love and Darkness") comes a hauntingly beautiful fable for both children and adults about tolerance, loneliness, denial, and remembrance.
From the Publisher:
In a gray and gloomy village, all of the animals—from dogs and cats to fish and snails—disappeared years before. No one talks about it and no one knows why, though everyone agrees that the village has been cursed. But when two children see a fish—a tiny one and just for a second—they become determined to unravel the mystery of where the animals have gone. And so they travel into the depths of the forest with that mission in mind, terrified and hopeful about what they may encounter. ||From the internationally bestselling author Amos Oz, this is a hauntingly beautiful fable for both children and adults about tolerance, loneliness, denial, and remembrance.

Annotation:
In this fable, a village cursed with bitterness and the lack of animals of any kind, two children begin searching for answers. Matti and Maya catch sight of a fish, and even a bird, and are determined to discover if there are more animals in the forest. Their explorations bring forth answers that the villagers didn't even know they were looking for. Amos Oz is a renown author of bestselling adult books, including A TALE OF LOVE AND DARKNESS and A PERFECT PEACE.
Author Bio
Amos Oz
Born Amos Klausner, Oz was raised in Jerusalem and attended an Orthodox Jewish school. Rebelling against his conservative and domineering scholar-father, he left home at 14, changed his name, and joined a kibbutz, where he espoused the leftist politics of David Ben-Gurion. He served in the Israeli army and studied at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, becoming skilled as a writer and teaching English and literature in the kibbutz school. His novels are rooted in Israeli society, and he is both a fearless innovator and a realist, always deeply involved in Israel's politics and struggle for survival.
