Description


A dreamworld where it rains fish instead of water, people dance through dinner, and children sleep with tigers--welcome to the imagination of author/artist Leif Parsons, whose detailed dreamscapes make ONLY FISH FALL FROM THE SKY a charming bedtime book sure to fascinate preschoolers and young readers.
A boy wakes from a marvelous dream to find the world is not quite as he left it--raindrops are falling from the sky, instead of fish, when everyone knows that only fish fall from the sky! But is he asleep or awake? Kids can decide for themselves which world they prefer as they pore over the imaginative dreamscapes of author/illustrator Leif Parson's delightful alternate world.
Movement infuses every inch of Parsons' elaborate illustrations, enticing young readers to linger over each spread to discover such kid-friendly surprises as kangaroos jumping double-dutch, a giant nose poking out of a city window, or a squirrel taking meticulous notes.
