Tiến loves his family and his friends...but Tiến has a secret he's been keeping from them, and it might change everything. An amazing YA graphic novel that deals with the complexity of family and how stories can bring us together. Real life isn't a fairytale. But Tiến still enjoys reading his favorite stories with his parents from the books he borrows from the local library. It's hard enough trying to communicate with your parents as a kid, but for Tiến, he doesn't even have the right words because his parents are struggling with their English. Is there a Vietnamese word for what he's going through? Is there a way to tell them he's gay? A beautifully illustrated story by Trung Le Nguyen that follows a young boy as he tries to navigate life through fairytales, an instant classic that shows us how we are all connected. The Magic Fish tackles tough subjects in a way that accessible with readers of all ages, and teaches us that no matter what--we can all have our own happy endings.… (més)

I'm loving the notion that the stories we tell change to suit our needs but not enthused by the artwork. ( )

Three stars? Yes--this is a really well done, clever graphic novel. I just didn't find it entertaining. It's purpose is very literary and it succeeds very well.

The gist is that fables are the tales that pull us together and help us copy with life. ( )

I really enjoyed this graphic novel, The Magic Fish by Trung Le Nguyen, both in reading and in his drawing style. Nguyen's art style, to me, had this art deco feel with similarities to W. W. Denslow and amazing sense of fashion throughout the comic. Story wise, I liked the Vietnamese culture; the mother and son relationship; the realistic struggles of coming out gay in the 1990s along with the secret crush that goes nowhere other than a platonic friendship; and the frame-story element from the real world, flashbacks, and the fairy tale worlds.

I highly recommend this to any young or old reader who enjoys cultural stories, immigration stories, positive LGBT stories, fairy tales, and/or parent/child relationships. ( )

Comparing folk tales from Vietnam and the western world, The Magic Fish follows a young teenage boy in the 1990's trying to figure out how to come out to his mom. With friends who support him, he does everything he can to gather the courage, and tries to do so by reading carefully selected stories to his mom to help her learn English.

What I Loved:
I love the connection and telling of folk tales and how the similarities between cultures exist. I also loved to see how we use stories as a true form of expression. The artwork has detailed line work that causes the reader to see the real message each panel is trying to tell.

What I Missed:
I would have narrowed down a bit of the folk tales, but not by much. It still connects how we can lose ourselves in stories and tend to ramble as we tell them. ( )
