Review

Carole's beautiful illustrations bring to life the girl, her animal friends, and her inner voice who encourages her to look beyond the negativity that surrounds her. Many of us can recall someone in our life whose negative attitude or condescending tone set us back temporarily. Overcoming that set back required us to rely on our confidence and support of the others in order to pursue our dreams. I highly recommend Carole Holliday's Fish Out of Water for anyone that has or is pursuing their dream!
John B. Herrington, PhD CDR USN(Ret) Astronaut, STS-113


In Fish Out Of Water Carole Holliday brings a dynamic new female heroine to storytelling. Marguerite is a determined, brilliant, and energetic character who uses her undeniable musical gifts to bring joy to others. We need more stories like this one, which teaches our youth about the power that lives inside them.
Kelly Edwards Vice President of Talent Development, Programming HBO


Fish Out of Water has an intensely relatable story will strike a cord with anyone who has big dreams but was told; "You will never accomplish what you dream". The story reminded me of the early days of my career as a makeup artist in a time when those types of careers were thought of as fleeting or mere hobbies by friends and family. I would encourage anyone to pass this book along to their own "fish out of water dreamer" to encourage them to follow their bliss and reach for the stars
Thanks for sharing this story Carole it's beautiful.

From the Author

Fish Out of Water is more than a "follow your dreams story."  
It's a sad fact that too many people fall short of achieving the reason they walk on this earth for various reasons.  I wrote "Fish Out of Water" as a counterpoint to  the many voices out there who are willing to tell you from childhood upwards to give up, or your ideas are dumb, or you're not good, pretty, popular enough, or simply wait a little longer before giving it a shot. 
"Fish Out of Water" is about being more than a dreamer, it's about being the person you were created to be. 
Carole Holliday, author/illustrator
