Author(s): Tom Sullivan
From debut author-illustrator Tom Sullivan comes a surprising and innovative picture book that is both a light introduction to the science of evolution and a tribute to every child’s power to dream big.
In I Used to be a Fish, a boy is inspired by a pet fish and fueled by imagination to tell a whimsical version of his own life story, which mirrors the process of human evolution. Children—and adults—will love the Seussian absurdity of this tale.
The book features a timeline of life on earth and an author’s note, which includes important facts about evolution.
Tom Sullivan used to be a fish. He also used to be a paper boy, a library page, a sign maker, a cashier, a waiter, a baker, and a graphic designer. He now writes and illustrates books. I Used to Be a Fish is his first one. Visit him online at www.thomasgsullivan.com.
