The story 'When the Shark and The Fish First Met' was written by Gilad Schalit in 1997, when he was 11 years old.
The symbolic story tells of the meeting between a young fish and shark who decide to be friends despite the tension and natural enmity between the two.
The artists Lee Rimon and Itschak de Lange have decided to take advantage of this story as a way to keep the kidnapped soldier in the public eye.
They invited the Israeli Illustrators' Association to illustrate the story and to exhibit it in the The Edge Gallery in Nahariya, Israel.
Giladís parents have written a letter inviting the children in Israel and around the world to illustrate this story, their illustrated books are also an important part of the exhibition.
The exhibition was first exhibited at 'The Edge Gallery' on November 2007.
Since then the wandering exhibition continues to be shown in other parts of Israel
