If I Were a Fish
Author: Corook and Olivia Barton; illustrated by Mike Curato
Why is everybody on the internet so mean?
Why is everybody so afraid of what they’ve never seen?
From the musicians and viral TikTok creators of If I Were A Fish, Corook and Olivia Barton, comes a picture book adaptation of their silly song with a serious message for everyone’s who’s ever had to navigate the highs and lows of the internet. Illustrated by the award-winning Mike Curato, this inspiring song about surrounding yourself with the people that make you the happiest is a timely reminder that it’s always best to be yourself.
How lucky are we?
Of all the fish in the sea
You get to be you!
And I get to be me!
When Corook is hit with hate on the internet, they and Olivia grab a guitar and dive into the comforting world of what it would be like to be a fish instead. Swimming away from all the negativity out there, together they make the best of a very bad day. Humans and fish alike are welcome to sing (or kazoo) along!
