Synopsis

How to Look After Your Goldfish by David Alderton

This is a practical guide to caring for your pet, in step-by-step photographs. Ideal for 5- to 9-year-olds, this delightful book will show young readers how to get the most out of being a thoughtful and responsible pet owner. It is packed with essential information and advice, from choosing the right goldfish and preparing a home for it, to feeding it and keeping it healthy. Children will be able to get to grips with the technical aspects of looking after fish, all demonstrated in more than 60 easy-to-follow pictures. There is more to keeping a goldfish than just providing it with a good home. Owning even the smallest pet is a big responsibility - but an enjoyable one. This fascinating book is a useful and accessible guide for young animal lovers on how best to care for their pet. It will tell them all they need to know about the different varieties that are available - from the exotic oranda to the weird and wonderful bubble-eye - where to buy them, when and what to feed them, and which is the best tank to use. Practical guidance is complemented by over 60 detailed photographs showing how to clean and maintain the tank, and even how to keep goldfish outdoors, making this the only book a junior fish keeper will ever need.
