Published In: United States, 24 January 2012
A beautifully illustrated picture book, Fish On A Walk has no text other than two thematic words at the bottom of each spread. This unusual format suggests ideas that are central to each illustration without telling the story, thereby encouraging children to imagine and invent their own.

A perfect circle time book, Fish On A Walk invites children to giggle together and share their elaborations. Packed with many small details, this book is perfectly suited to young picture book explorers who tend to zero in on just that!

Eva Muggenthaler was born in 1971 in Furth and studied illustration and graphic design at the College of Design in Hamburg. She is one of Germany's most popular illustrators. Eva has been nominated for the German Youth Literature Prize for two of her many picture books. She lives in Schwabstedt with her family.

Reviews

"Jealous-Accepting. Same-Different. Tricky-Truthful. So reads the provocatively spare text accompanying lush illustrations of all manner of animals doing extraordinary things [...] the book's lovely premise encourages original storytelling and the incorporation of personal experience on the part of its listeners." - ForeWord Reviews "Illustrator Eva Muggenthaler brings us into the realm of the amiably enigmatic. It's that kind of picture book: full of visual pranks, silent amusements and mysterious meaning." - Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal "Fish on a Walk is an unusual children's book that will lead to visual and conceptual adventures that are profoundly educational." - The Midwest Book Review ..". there's lots to talk about in this saucy, offbeat book; it's the kind children will return to." - Publisher's Weekly "A German surrealist debuts on this side of the Atlantic with a set of independent scenes that will give wings to flights of imagination. [...] [The] central scenarios can be seen in a glance, but further examination reveals smaller and often more ambiguous side business that, properly, invites questions (Why do those ants have shopping bags? Is that a shark's fin in that puddle of spilled soda?) and speculative answers." - Kirkus Reviews -Jealous-Accepting. Same-Different. Tricky-Truthful.
