Paul is a fish who used to go around in circles. He made big circles and little circles. He circled from left to right and from right to left. He circled from top to bottom and from bottom to top. What else was there to do? Until one day Bernadette drops in and shows Paul that there is a whole world out there, right outside his bowl, with so many things to see. A banana-shaped boat! A blue elephant with a spout like trunk (be quiet when she’s feeding her babies)! A lovely lunetta butterfly, with tortoise-shell rims! Simple saturated paintings play off this charming ode to an active imagination — and the way that life changes when a bewitching creature opens your eyes
Paul Meets Bernadette Paul Meets Bernadette is a beautifully illustrated book about a fish named Paul who spends his days swimming in circles alone until the day Bernadette drops into his bowl. When Bernadette arrives, she introduces Paul to the whole world outside of their fishbowl. Bernadette points out all of the things that are in view from their bowl: a banana that is really a boat, a teapot that is really an elephant and fried eggs that are really the sun and moon. Paul falls in love with Bernadette and swims in circles around her now instead. Sweet story. If you can’t wait to read this beautiful book, watch the author’s book trailer below.
