Day OneI swam around my bowl.Day TwoI swam around my bowl. Twice.And so it goes in this tell-all tale from a goldfish.With his bowl to himself and his simple routine, Goldfish loves his life..until one day...When assorted intruders including a hyperactive bubbler, a grime-eating snail, a pair of amorous guppies, and areally crabby crab invade his personal space and bowl, Goldfish is put out, to say the least. He wants none of it,preferring his former peace and quiet and solitude.But time away from his new companions gives him a chance to rethink the pros and cons of a solitary life. And discover what he's been missing.Devin Scillian is an award-winning author and Emmy award-winningbroadcast journalist.
