Fish is Fish - Lionni

So this book starts out with a fish and a tadpole being friends. As the tadpole grows up though the fish is left alone as the frog ventures out. When the frog returns he tells him many things about what he has seen but everything the fish hears about it imagines it looks like a fish. Finally one day he decides he will see these things for himself and he jumps out of the pond only to find himself helpless. Frog is nearby though and pushes him back into the pond where he recovers. He decides that his world is the best place for him to be.
Ok book but some of the wording just sounds like bad English. The illustrations were funny to see what the fish was imagining. Overall, I wasn't very impressed with this book.
