Every day, Philip the fish waves goodbye to his mom and dad and goes to hang out with his schoolmates. They drink kelp smoothies and swim through beautiful, colored coral. Today is different because Philip forgot his wallet and has to turn back home.
On his way home, though, Philip is scooped up by a mysterious “thingamabob” and brought above water! Philip can’t breathe up there, but he’s soon thrown into a water-filled bucket with a bunch of fish he doesn’t know before moving to another big container where he sees … them.
There are dreaded no-fins everywhere! No-fins are scary, harmful creatures—or at least that’s what Philip has heard. He soon sees a tiny no-fin, smaller than the rest. Philip comes to realize that no-fins aren’t so bad as this little no-fin helps him get home. Through Philip’s story, author Page Tudyk hopes that everyone in the world would see life through the eyes of an animal, beginning with our little ones, whose compassion can speak for those with no voice.
