Description
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. "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?
