“Is that really the ending?”
“It’s an old, old story. Details change. Things change. And now this story is ours. Yours and mine.”

Ahh. Every page is a feast for the eyes and heart.
Smart and lovingly done.

This graphic novel was full of beautiful illustrations, and a heartwarming story. I enjoyed the way the fairytales mixed in between real life.

This graphic novel was thoroughly beautiful. The artwork, the story, the themes, the authors notes at the end— all of it! I definitely teared up a little at the end.

The Magic Fish is the story of Tiến, a 13 year old boy whose parents immigrated to the U.S. from Vietnam when they were younger. One of the ways his family likes to connect together is through story time, which they also use to practice their English. Tiến is also able to learn more about his family’s past through the stories his mom shares with him. Both mother and son go through some tough things during the story and find it hard to communicate about them in the way they would like to. Tiến worries over how to come out to his parents and his mother must deal with deep grief. But perhaps their tradition of storytelling, and interweaving the stories of two different generations, will become the language that finally allows them to connect.

I loved seeing the weaving together of Tiến’s life with the fairytales told between family members. It made it even cooler after reading the author’s notes at the end and seeing the inspiration behind how each story was told, both with the words and illustrations. I loved seeing the power of stories in Tiến’s family to connect them together in a sort of language that is able to transcend space and time and bring the two generations closer together.

The art is so stunning and detailed that I would spend a lot of time on each spread just taking it all in and have also gone back to look through it again. This is most definitely one of my favorite graphic novels now. Can’t wait to see more from Trung Le Nguyen (aka Trungles)!
