The Magic Fish
By Trung Le Nguyen
Real life isn't a fairytale.
In fairy tales, the prince falls in love with the princess. But Tiến has a different story to tell. It's hard enough trying to communicate with your parents as a kid, but for Tiến, he doesn't even have the right words because his parents are struggling with their English. Is there a Vietnamese word for what he's going through?
Is there a way to tell them he's gay?
A beautifully illustrated story by Trung Le Nguyen that follows a young boy as he tries to navigate life through fairy tales, an instant classic that shows us how we are all connected. The Magic Fish tackles tough subjects in a way that is accessible with readers of all ages, and that teaches us that no matter what—we can all have our own happy endings.
