"you got to have friends..."
I can hear Bette Midler singing this...
In The Story of Fish and Snail, we meet two friends at a divergent moment in their friendship, one of them ready to make a big leap into something new while the other is not quite ready.
Trust prevails as both Fish and Snail journey forth into new worlds with the safety and comfort of a familiar friend.
Creative genius is challenged and usurped when Mouse's quiet story about having tea at home turns into a rollicking adventure - - replete with a dragon and king -- when taken over by Frog's exuberance.
These two friends have to learn the creative boundaries around friendship.
This illustration tugs at my heart as Frog tries to undo the "damage" to Mouse's story. The words make it even more powerful.
All ends well as the two friends begin again with a common vision for their storytelling.
In by Mouse and Frog, two creative heads are better than one!
