whale in a fishbowl

Wednesday is a big blue whale who lives in a fishbowl in the middle of a bustling city.  When I first heard that this was the premise of the story, that’s all I needed to read and I was sold on it.  But to then take a closer look and realize that the art was by one of my new favorites—Richard Jones—that was what sent it over the top for me.  One day Wednesday meets a little girl named Piper who makes her question her glass home.  It’s a quiet, beautiful and sympathetic story for dreamers or for anyone who feels like they don’t quite belong.

Whale in a Fishbowl was written by Troy Howell, illustrated by Richard Jones and published by Schwartz & Wade Books.  It’ll be out on 5/22.
