The Adventures of Lily and Leon: A Soppy Fish Tale
by Cynthia Briggs
"The Adventures of Lily and Leon" was written to encourage parents to teach their children that the color of our skin is unimportant. Lily, a white fish, and Leon a black fish, become friends when they meet in the deep, dark waters of the Green Gulf. Though fishfriends warn they shouldn't swim together, they're soon able to learn, and then teach their friends, that friends come in many colors.
