Summary
  • When the villagers realize the fish's scales are real gold, each has a good reason to ask for one. Devorah needs clothes for her children. Old Joseph needs money for a cane. The fish has plenty to share, but he grows weak from giving away too much, too fast. Can Reuven stand up to the village and save his friend?
  • Young Reuven becomes friends with a fish which gladly shares his golden scales with the needy people of Reuven's village, although each lost scale puts his own health at risk. Includes author's note about the origin of the story in two Jewish tales, and the guidance found in every religion, and in economics, for protecting our environment and using resources wisely
