Fall in love with a modern fairy tale inspired by a Jewish family memory in this magical picture book by award-winning picture book creators Elana K. Arnold and Magdalena Mora.

Once, there was a girl named Kiki, who found a fish on the asphalt.

The fish was very hot and very dry.

But when Kiki put it in the bathtub, it started swimming, and growing, and . . . speaking?

"I want to grant you a wish for saving me," it said.

A wish-granting fish!

Alas, this fish was only a fish of small wishes, and Kiki's wish was too big.

Unless . . . there was a way for both their dreams to come true.

Follow Kiki and the wish-granting fish in this contemporary fairy-tale perfect for fans of A Big Mooncake for Little Star and Carmela Full of Wishes.
