TThe Fisherman and his Wife is Fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm, translated by Margaret Hunt in 1884. There once was a poor fisherman who lived with his wife in a hovel by the sea. One day the fisherman catches a golden flounder who claims to be an enchanted prince. The fisherman kindly releases it. When his wife hears the story, she says he ought to have had the flounder grant him a wish. Ilsebill tells him to go back and ask the flounder to grant her wish for a nice house. The fisherman returns to the shore but is uneasy when he finds that the sea seems to be turning dark when it was so clear before. He makes up a rhyme to summon the flounder, and it grants the wife's wish. However, the wife gets greedy and makes increasingly outrageous demands: a castle so she can become queen, then empress and finally pope. But wife goes too far when she wishes to become equal to God. The flounder revokes everything it granted. This children's e-book is fully illustrated all-color.
