Alan Watts (1915-1973) is hailed one of the most accessible and entertaining interprters of Eastern philosophy in the West. A teacher whose popularity has only increased over time, he wrote more than 25 books. This is his only teaching story created especially for children. He wrote this story to help children understand something that confuses even grown-ups: How do we get out of our own way and go with the flow? What do we do when we feel afraid, angry, or confused about something that's mostly in our own head? Within these pages you'll discover how the Great Sea helps our poor little fish get out of the mess he's created. And like the fish you'll learn there's a deep and wise voice that will always be ready to guide us to freedom when we get lost in our own thoughts.
