Fish and Sun

Fish and Sun

By Sergio Ruzzier, Illustrated by Sergio Ruzzier


Introducing I Can Read Comics, a new early reader line that familiarizes children with the world of graphic novel storytelling and encourages visual literacy in emerging readers.

One day, a bored little fish journeys up to the surface of the ocean, where it meets the sun. A wonderful friendship blooms… Only, right in the middle of their fun, the sun starts to set! Fish and Sun is a powerful story about newfound friendship by Sergio Ruzzier.

"Painted seascapes in rich colors warm the early reader comic's minimal text, and small details—Fish sleeps underwater with a small pillow—will draw laughter." (Publishers Weekly)

Fish and Sun is a Level One I Can Read Comic, a simple story for shared reading.
