A Fish Named Glub

A Fish Named GlubIllustrated by Josée Bisaillon

In this lyrical story about friendship and the power of dreams, a small and ordinary fish asks himself the big questions in life as he observes life in the diner beyond his fishbowl.

Who am I? Where do I belong?

The lively characters around him provide unexpected answers, but soon it’s Glub who reveals answers to their questions, and their hearts’ true desires. The small and ordinary fish discovers that life can be extraordinary. You just have to ask …


“A story that is as delightful in its individual parts as it is in its sweeping theme of dreams discovered and the small push of self-belief needed to follow them.”

Kirkus Review, February 26, 2014

“Bar-el’s tale of a fish who changes the lives of the employees and patrons of a small diner has the scope of a novel.”

Publishers Weekly, February 3, 2014

“Bisaillon creates gorgeous mixed-media tapestries upon which Bar-el’s words dance.”
