Buy The Little Black Fish

Award winning illustrator Farshid Mesghali sent us this photo to mark the special occasion!

2018 is a very special year for a very special little fish! It marks the 50th year of the classic Iranian children’s book, The Little Black Fish! Written by the late Samad Behrangi, and illustrated Hans Christian Andersen Award winner Farshid Mesghali, this is a well loved story, that encourages readers to be bold and brave! Initially, it was banned in pre-revolutionary Iran, due to its daring message. It shares a message to follow your dreams, and to not be afraid to be different or stand up for what is right.

We celebrated this important birthday at Hay Festival in May! It was a wonderful way to mark this milestone! Watch the video below to find out more about The Little Black Fish, and our fab birthday celebrations.
