Memoirs of a Goldfish

Memoirs of a Goldfish
By Devin Scillian; illustrated by Tim Bowers
32 pages, ages 4 -8
Sleeping Bear Press, 2010

“Day One: I swam around my bowl. Day Two: I swam around my bowl. Twice.”
So begins Memoirs of a Goldfish, a tell-all tale from a goldfish. Life is pretty simple until, one day, the goldfish gets company: Mr. Bubbles. Then come the plants, a snail named Mervin, a crab, two guppies, a sunken pirate ship…. Things are getting pretty crowded in the fishbowl!

By day twelve the goldfish Has. Had. It. He wants his bowl back, and peace and quiet restored. But when he gets his wish, he realizes that he misses his friends. This is a fun read – from a different point of view – about friends, wishes, and maybe true love. There’s nothing fishy about that!
