Synopsis

Not Norman A Goldfish Story by Kelly Bennett

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 JOURNAL Norman 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 knowyou wanted.
