Real life isn't a fairytale. But Tién still enjoys reading his favorite stories with his parents from the books he borrows from the local library. It's hard enough trying to communicate with your parents as a kid, but for Tién, he doesn't even have the right words because his parents are struggling with their English. Is there a Vietnamese word for what he's going through? Is there a way to tell them he's gay? A beautifully illustrated story by Trung Le Nguyen that follows a boy as he tries to navigate life through fairytales, an instant classic that shows us how we are all connected. Available in softcover and hardcover editions.

    The Magic Fish is an endearing story that is authentic, hopeful, and whispers in our ears that stories will save the day. I loved reading this graphic novel and I was gently reminded that it is our stories that will keep our hearts connected to the ones we love. Stories can illuminate our own lives and keep the people in our lives present, even when they are no longer here with us. This book is a great brave and beautiful reminder that we can rewrite stories where we get the happy endings and that the people we love can always reach us, even if they don't have the perfect words to do so.

Even better yet, go and grab the hardback copy from your local bookstore! Read Full Review
