Awarded the Caldecott Medal (2013) and the Kate Greenway Medal (2014), this book's prestige and popularity is well deserved. Centering on a fish who has made a questionable decision, the well-judged minimalism of the tone, alongside the beautiful illustrations rendered in Chinese ink result in a picturebook labelled by The Guardian as "a modern day classic". The gentle twists and turns make it perfect as a bedtime story; it's also commendable as one of literature's most inventive chase sequences. Adults and children alike love Jon Klassen! Paperback.
