Publisher's Description

A hilarious read with an important message

A humble fisherman is taking a nap in his boat when a tourist interrupts him. The outspoken tourist points out that instead of napping, the fisherman could go out and catch more fish, which would eventually earn him enough money to buy a proper motor-boat. The tourist continues to embellish his idea, envisioning canneries, restaurants, and private helicopters. But the fisher­man has his own ideas about what success looks like.

With comic-like illustrations that emphasize the story’s humor, this funny and thoughtful book will inspire readers to celebrate life’s simple pleasures and enjoy the here and now.

Emile Bravo was partly inspired to become a comic creator by The Adventures of Tintin. His previous works include "Young Americans," which was nominated for the Eisner Award for Best Short Story in 2008. He lives in France.
