April the Red Goldfish [FRE] free pdf From the creator of Little Red Hood...Meet April. A young goldifsh seeking worldy adventures. And the meaning of life. Marjolaine Leray's iconic red scribbles are back! From the same author-illustrator as the best-selling and much reviewed Little Red Hood, comes this exceptionally clever, witty and oh so stylish tale of a young fish's search for meaning of life and what means to be trapped in one's own goldfish bowl.April the Red Goldfish is not a book for very young children- it is a picturebook for older children with huge crossover teenage / adult gift appeal. For any young person desperate to fly the nest or about to embark on their first solo travels, this little fish could be the perfect gift. - REVIEWS - "Philosophical and about overcoming. A wide-eyed goldfish, April, is "searching for the meaning of life". There is a particularly comic spread in which April, fearing that life has no meaning, contemplates rows of empty goldfish bowls, with a fish skeleton at the bottom of the last one. Leray's piquant wit is everywhere and when April dreams of taming wild animals, the beast on show is, plainly, a yellow rubber duck. (For tormented sophisticates of all ages.)" -- Kate Kellaway, OBSERVER. "Surreal, scribbled account of teen goldfish's angst-ridden rebellion. Disconcertingly funny" -- Imogen Russel Williams, METRO"The story of this soul-searching goldfish is witty and droll, particularly because goldfish are often seen as the most insignificant and pointless pets. This yearning to break the mould of expectations is a recurrent theme in Leray's work, as is her minimalist palette, predominantly of red and black and her scribbly artwork. But as a picturebook for older readers, it will undoubtedly speak to those teens who feel that they are not completely comfortable with their place in the world and are yearning for something more" -- LIBRARY MICE. "An expressively drawn, very red story about a gloomy goldfish, with some fine jokes" -- Lorna Bradbury, THE TELEGRAPH. "Marjolaine Leray returns with her trademark red scribbles in this exceptionally clever, witty and stylish tale of a young fish's search for the meaning of life and what it means to be trapped in one's own goldfish bowl" -- LANCASHIRE EVENING POST. "April The Red Goldfish is a wickedly funny tale, crammed full of wit and personality...A triumph." -- THE ILLUSTRATED FOREST
