Fish In a Tree – Albert



Albert is an interesting character.  He has many layers.  Although he seemed simple at first, the more we read about him, the more complicated his character becomes.

On page 100 Albert explains why he wears the Flint shirt.   He talks about the Star Trek character who left Earth to be alone.

How is Albert like the character he is talking about?

What are Albert’s challenges? How does he respond to them?  How does he protect himself?

Fish In A Tree

fiatThe title for the book Fish In A Tree was inspired by the following quote.

“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.” –Albert Einstein

What do you think this means?  How does this relate to the book?
