About Fish Wish Chris and Friend

The School of Fish 3-D characters from the books were transformed to "fish out of water" by Christine Okoren and Beverly Price. In collaboration of this project Christine Okoren and Beverly Price created 3-D whimsical fish. For those who view the fish, the experience is one of lighthearted joy. Christine has enjoyed the ride with the School of Fish. She has read her books to hundreds of children in Michigan and San Francisco, California.
