Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A girl ventures to the water's edge, dreaming of a new friend. And, just like that, a beguiling red fish leaps into her life. But is friendship a sea these two can navigate together? From debut Argentinian author-illustrator Cynthia Alonso comes a wordless picture book about the timeless beauty of nature, the transcendent power of connection, and the importance of letting go.

Horn Book Review

After a fish jumps onto a dock, a girl takes it home and keeps it in her living room. Upon realizing the fish's unhappiness, she returns it to the ocean. This wordless tale's illustrations--in shades of blue, red, and gold--show the dazzling lengths to which the girl goes to turn water, bowls, and tubing into an aquatic indoor world.
