Elvie is desperate for a puppy that she can train up to do amazing tricks. But it's not a puppy Mum returns from the pet shop with, it's a fish. But Elvie doesn't give up. Determined to fulfill her dream of having a performing pet she trains up Fluff the fish. He can't sit, he won't bark on command, but he does have a very special fishy talent all of his own...

Reviews

A real treat for young readers, full of cheeky humour. * The Bookseller * Perfect for every child who's just beginning to read alone, this hilarious tale is a roller coaster ride of fame and fortune and the possible resulting disasters. * Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading * A delicious idea taken to a ridiculous extreme . . . gloriously silly and slightly naughty. * The Bookbag * Perfectly judged to engage newly competent readers * The School Librarian * Not to be missed * Creative Steps *
