What would you say if someone asked you why the world was worth saving? What if you didn’t really care? This is the problem that young Horatio is facing when a visit to his local aquarium goes in an unexpected direction. Inspired by a Chinese legend, “A Fish in the Mirror” is a humorous yet thoughtful exploration of human nature through scenes of everyday banality and of not-so-everyday crisis. Like the finest magic realism, the fantastical premise of the story lends a charm and dynamism that in no way reduces the relevance of the observations it presents, making this title an essential reading for anyone looking for a thrill, an escape, or an inspiration.
