Title: Fisherman and Golden Fish
Author: Alexander Pushkin
Published in 1835 and translated in English by Robert Chandler.
It is a fairy tale.
When I saw this book first time, I was so curious to know about Golden Fish and why the Golden Fish is fulfilling the fisherman wishes.
This is one of my favourite stories books. I loved this story book because, on the front cover there is a nice golden fish and old fisherman standing near the river.
This book has lots of colourful pictures of huts, river and gardens. My father bought this book and gifted it to me at a railway station, when we were travelling to our native place.
The characters of the story are fisherman, his wife and the golden fish.
The setting of the story is in the riverside and huts.
The story is about a fisherman who managed to catch a golden fish which promises to fulfil any wish of his, in exchange for its freedom. The important part of the story is ‘Golden Politeness’ response.
The key takeaway of the story is the victory of good over evil, in a conflict between the two. At the end of the story it teaches about an old woman who got punished for her greed.
If I could change one thing about the book, I would like to add a son or daughter in the fisherman family.
The writing style and photos are simple for 7+ year olds, illustrations very attractive and the book has a nice colourful, soft look.
Overall, the book is very good in terms of story and attractive illustrations. My review rating for the book is 5*. Thank You!!!
*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
