Review:


A lonely little goldfish lives in a small uneventful bowl. One day he finds a roommate in a diving suit leaning and bubbling. The little goldfish referred to him as Mr. Bubbles. Each day more characters arrived. There was Mervin the snail, Fred the crab, 2 guppies named Rhoda and Clark and let's not forget Cha-Cha the angelfish. Oh, and the sunken ship mysteriously appeared as well.


As you can imagine the little lonely goldfish was beside himself. His over crowded home was now full and disgusting. By the thirteenth day of his memoir he found himself in a smaller, cleaner bowl. And once again very much alone. Where had everyone gone? Did anyone notice that he was gone? Most importantly, did they miss him because he certainly missed them. You'll have to finish the memoir to discover the end of this fishy tale.


Author Devin Scillian and illustrator Tim Bowers have put together a simple idea full of crazy characters that add so much to the story. The colorful and hilarious illustrations bring to life this quirky tale. Simple sentence structure makes for an easy read for any beginner. Parents will love this book for a bedtime treat because it is short and sweet.
