Rob Costello, a fishmonger, must be hearing things, because he swears a fish is speaking to him. Furthermore, it's speaking Yiddish-and Rob doesn't even speak Yiddish. Oy vey! Although Mr. Lipshitz, Rob's boss, is skeptical at first, he eventually hears the fish speak, too. "It sounds like my aunt Louise!" he says. When the mysterious fish seeks refuge back in the fish barrel and Rob and Mr. Lipshitz try to find him again, it looks as though they might have to set their entire catch free. After all, a Yiddish fish doesn't come around every day.
The Yiddish Fish is a silly picture book for the whole family. Author/illustrator Santiago Cohen's colorfully drawn scenes are captivating and add a bit of magic to this true-life-inspired story. Children are sure to love reading and speculating about this modern-day miracle. The Yiddish Fish will definitely get people talking-and maybe even a fish or two!
