Hope: The Story of A Banana-Fish by David A. Neumeier is a beautifully written story about a banana-fish named Hope. David cleverly crafts the story in telling us about Hope as he intermingles the elements of the sea world into it. He introduces the book like a movie. In his prologue, David provides a quick lesson about banana-fish, which are colorful and non-carnivorous, and banana-crabs, which are large and primarily live in tropical waters. Then he leads us into the sea where we meet a cast of characters. From the beginning, Hope was unlike any other banana-fish due to her larger than normal body size and her quick and adept swimming abilities at such a young age. As Hope starts to find herself, she begins to evolve in a world all of her own. Her quest to define her uniqueness leads her on a journey where she meets three new friends that are taboo within the sea world: Zig, the wise elder banana-crab, and Stubs and Spike, two young, energetic catfish that help her to make a difference in the sea world. Just because you are taught a certain way, does it always have to be that way or is there any room for change? David ends the book with an epilogue which tells us the outcome of these characters. Maybe one day Hope: The Story of A Banana-Fish by David A. Neumeier will be in a theatre near you.
