Fish Feet

An Illustrated Picture Book

This story is based on actual events. Many years ago there was a tradition that on Good Friday nothing could be done. To help fulfill this day of rest, a legend was born which said that if anyone got into the ocean on this particular day they would turn into a fish. Parents would warn their children about this. My grandmother also told this to my mother and uncle on one such occasion in which they, when they were little, happened to be at the beach on a Good Friday.

In this sweet story, two siblings go to the shore with their mother, who wishes to visit her sister. Once there, they are warned to not go into the ocean, since it is Good Friday. If they do so, they’ll become fish!

Will they heed their mother’s warning? Or, will they risk the consequences of their actions?
