A Goldfish Story
author: Kelly Bennett
illustrator: Noah Z. Jones
"Don't think that just because you made me laugh, I'm going to keep you," I tell him. "Tomorrow, you're outta here."
Norman the goldfish isn't what this little boy had in mind. He wanted a different kind of pet – one that could run and catch, or chase string and climb trees, a soft furry pet to sleep on his bed at night. Definitely not Norman. But when he tries to trade Norman for a "good pet," things don't go as he planned. Could it be that Norman is a better pet than he thought?
With wry humor and lighthearted affection, author Kelly Bennett and illustrator Noah Z. Jones tell an unexpected – and positively fishy – tale about finding the good in something you didn't know you wanted.
