Molly and Joe live in a little house in a little town by the sea. Joe is a fisherman. Every day,
he rows his boat out to sea to catch fish. His wife, Molly, sells the fish to the people in
the town. Their life is simple and they are happy!
Until one day, Joe catches a magic fish. The fish can talk and he can sing! His name is Sushi. He
begs Joe to set him free, and promises to grant him a wish in return. Joe can wish for anything
he wants: a new house, new clothes, money... anything in the world.
Molly and Joe’s happy life is soon turned upside-down by the amazing powers of this magic fish,
but Molly becomes greedy and asks for more and more. All the things she thought would make
her happy have the opposite effect, and the fish’s magic starts to go horribly wrong…
‘A Fishy Tale’ is a story with a moral based on the popular children’s fairy tale ‘The Fisherman and
his Wife’ by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm.
