“The Legend of Catfish & Little Bream” is an enchanting, entertaining book set among pond wildlife. “The Legend of Catfish & Little Bream” is the creation of published author Ronnie Wells, a nationally recognized naturalist and wildlife artist for over forty years from North Louisiana.

Wells shares, “The joy with which Catfish entered the lake didn’t last long. Although it was beautiful, the lake was not home. Catfish’s thoughts soon turned to life in the little pond with his friends. He tried hard to forget the old place and to be content with his new life in the big lake. But he just couldn’t.
A couple of lake locals, Willie Walleye and Poindexter Pike, took notice of Catfish and his sad situation. Amazed that he had journeyed all the way from a small Southern pond, they tried to make him feel at home. But Catfish didn’t feel at home. He was homesick. And so he swam aimlessly through the lake day after day imagining that he was home with Little Bream and Bullfrog.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Ronnie Wells’s new book is a touching story that recognizes that it’s not the splendor of one’s surroundings but rather the presence of friends and family that make a place home.

As Catfish is afflicted with both wanderlust and its close companion homesickness, readers of all ages will be drawn into this colorful world of water critters and relate with the ebbs and flows of his emotions—following him all the way home to a happy ending.
