সবদিক থেকেই সুনদর ছিল। অনুবাদটাও ভালো হয়েছিল। তবে ছোটদের বইতে বাজে একটা গালি একাধিক বার বযবহার দৃষটিকটু লেগেছে। পিডিএফ। ভেতরের একটা ছবিঃ ...more

очень красивая образовательная сказка
Well I was raised by such stories and I'm thankful for that. That being said I'll move on with the story.
This story is about a fisherman who finds a fish, a fish that makes his wishes come true. His wife is very greedy and just ends up asking so many things from the fish. Well, the ending isn't the classic happy ending that tales have.
Obviously, this is a tale for kids (I just happened to read it in Russian 'cause my Russian is poor to read other great
I have read many interpretations of the classic Brothers Grimm tale “The Fisherman and his Wife,” but this is the first time I have read the Russian version of this tale. “The Magic Gold Fish” is a Russian folktale retold by Demi and it is about how a poor fisherman wants to please his greedy wife when he finds a magic golden fish. “The Magic Gold Fish” is a great retelling of the ancient tale that children everywhere will love!

One day, a poor fisherman catches a gold fish and the gold fish prom

ছড়া যদি খাপছাড়া, গলপ যদি হয় তালগোল তো কী লাভ কিছু লিখে?
অনুবাদ যদি নতুন ভাষায় ঝরঝরে না হয় তো সে অনুবাদ বৃথা।
পড়ে মনে হয়েছে শুধু কটা লাইন পড়েছি,
বইটা যদি মানুষ হত, তবে মনে হত, রকত-মাংস ছাড়া কাউকে মানুষ বলে ধরে বসেছি।

This may well have been written as a veiled criticism of Catherine The Great in her greed of imperialism but the truth in this does not alter because of time. It may also be considered as a mere fairy story but to me, at least, it is as relevant now as it ever was.

Recommends it for: everyone
i couldn't find the original so i used this version to add. it looks like closest, but the real thing is:

The Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish (Russian: Сказка о рыбаке и рыбке) is an 1835 poem by Aleksandr Pushkin.

read the original if you can find it. you can find it at my house. it's about an old fisherman who catches a goldfish in the sea who grants him a wish if he's let him go. the fisherman lets him go without any wish but when he goes home his wife sends him back to wish for stuff - over

На этой сказке я выросла. Она научила меня мыслить, думать над своими поступками, не быть жадной. История о человеческой жадности приобретает напряжение психологического триллера и выходит за рамки детского чтения.
Эта сказка, как и все сказки, учит добру. Добро побеждает зло. так же она учит нас и тому, что не стоит упускать в жизни такой шанс, который, возможно, уже больше никогда не встретится в жизни. У старика он был. Может быть, этот шанс был наградой за его какие-либо благие поступки, сове
Very cool pictures, everything is encapsulated in a circle--the text always on the left page with a design around it relating to the story, and the picture on the right with a wide band of gold leave circling the picture. Striking use of color throughout--much of the color palliate is pastel sort of washed out colors, but there are bursts of color throughout, especially when the goldfish is depicted.

Bear in mind I am not a fan of the folktale genre. That being said, the children who heard this story enjoyed it. Unlike most stories there is no happy ending.
