Not Norman : A Goldfish Story, Paperback / softback Book

Not Norman : A Goldfish Story Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Noah Z. Jones

Paperback / softback


"A sweet story that could be used as a springboard to discussion of the pitfalls of making snap judgments about pets - or people." - School Library JournalNorman 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.
