 Far in the deep ocean there once lived a fish and this fish was unique because anything he wished for, the fish got. When he wished for a castle the fish got a castle, and when he wished for a way to "teach sharks a lesson" he got that too and no there is no doubt that he had great fun teaching the sharks a lesson that they would never forget. In fact, one could say that the fish had it all and yet there was one thing that he had not wished for; the fish had not thought to wish for some good old-fashioned common sense. As a result the extraordinary fish ends up making a fatal mistake.
  Entertaining, with deliciously funny illustrations, the wishing fish is irresistible. One cannot help liking him, and laughing at him.
