Have you seen this book ‘A FISH WITH A WISH’?
A children’s book with a simple yet powerful message.
“Everyone is special, unique and extraordinary.”
HERE’S HOW THIS BEST SELLER WAS BORN….
There’s always a story behind a story, and the story behind ‘A Fish with a Wish’, is one of courage.
Now, this takes guts…. Almost 15 years ago, a young lady walked into my gallery and asked if I would consider collaborating with her to illustrate a book she would author. I explained with a smile that I was unfortunately too busy. We had a great chat about creativity and she left as a friend. We had a great chat about creativity and she left as a friend.
A few months later, she came back and presented me with a scrapbook, full of handwritten pages and accompanied with pictures, she had printed from my website. She had actually written a story around my existing paintings. Her name is Katrina Logan and I was blown away by her courage and determination.
Pretty gutsy move, hey? So, Katrina got my attention, and twisted my arm …
Needless to say, we collaborated. I painted some extra pieces in my TK original style plus we used some existing popular art pieces.
The end result, is this book ‘A Fish with a Wish’, which is now a BEST SELLER!
To date, over 6000 copies have sold both in Australia and Internationally.
Thousands of kids and adults have been touched by this story.
On top of this, ‘A Fish with a Wish’ is also in every Queensland State School. It was recommended by the Department of Education and Training’s C2C’s Team in the Australian Curriculum for all Qld Schools.
‘A Fish with a Wish’ is a story that shows you and your kids that we are all extraordinary.
I am constantly contacted by teenage kids now who grew up with this book – Now that makes me feel proud (and old!).
We have sold out again BUT have just done our third reprint.
