H, Little O, and Baby Em are stuck in the city for the summer with only their pet goldfish -Barracuda, Patch, and Fiss – for company. It looks like it might be a pretty boring vacation, but something exciting happens one day. Someone starts fixing up the old fountain down the street, and a sign appears:
“Calling All Goldfish Looking for a Summer Home.”
What a cute and clever little story.
This is a partially true story based on real events that took place in New York City over the summers of 1992 to 2005. Check out the Author’s Note at the back of the book to learn what’s true and what’s made up.
When I was ten or something, I had a goldfish that somehow managed to survive two whole years. After reading this story, I kind of want to get another one.
Heads up, after reading this story, your kid or kids will probably want a pet goldfish.
