"A Roach Called Wensum" by Tom Baird is published

A children's book about friendship, courage, ability, understanding and not judging others

About the Book:

This is a charming children's tale aimed at two- to six-year-olds.

The main character is a fish that goes on a journey in search of his family. On the way he meets different types of fish, who he befriends and they form their own unique family.

Wensum has a few close encounters; one with a human who is fishing and Wensum is caught, and the other with one of his fears, a giant pike known for eating other fish. But together they stay strong and reach his family.

Excerpt from the book:

"Hello my name is Wensum. I'm a fish and I live in a river on the Norfolk Broads. I want to tell you about my big journey and how I found my family. You see it's not easy being a fish. There are lots of scary and challenging things you must do. I remember being a small egg floating in the weeds at the side of the river bank and before you know it, I hatched. Wow, I felt so big, but small at the same time. You see, living in a river is a big lesson; learning what's safe and what's not. At first, I was with lots of other small roach the same age, but as you get bigger you find yourself exploring things you never knew were there.

That's when it happened; I swam too far away from my family and friends. Before I knew it, I was too far downriver and was amongst bigger fish.  I met a chub called Harry. Harry was funny. He had a wide mouth and was scared of everything. Harry saw me and saw I was alone. He took me under his fin and showed me how to look after myself."
