I Used to be a Fish is a book written by Tom Sullivan for ages 4–8. A boy imagines his pet fish tells him the story of evolution.
The 48-page book is drawn in 3 colors: red, blue and white. It was described as similar in style to Dr Seuss by some reviewers due to the simple drawing style and absurdity of the tale. It includes a timeline and author's note at the end for older children or parents who want material for further discussion.
Author-illustrator Tom Sullivan was a freelance graphic designer. This is the author's first book. The idea of the book came to him on a different project, “I was thinking about mammals and reptiles and eggs, when I got to frogs. I started to wonder how a frog who used to be a tadpole would describe that experience, and a title for a different story just popped into my head.”
