Title: Gilbert Goldfish Wants a Pet

Author: Kelly DiPucchio

KDL Description:


Gilbert has everything a goldfish could want except a pet of his own, but none of the animals who come near his fishbowl seem quite right until Fluffy, with his long tail and whiskers, appears.

Amazon Description:

Gilbert has almost everything his fishy heart could desire: a castle, a chest filled with treasure, and food that falls from the sky. But there’s one BIG thing missing from his life: a pet. And so begins Gilbert’s harrowing search for the perfect fishbowl companion – a search filled with loud barking, quiet buzzing, and one giant whiskered surprise!

With snappy, rhythmic text and the most irresistible goldfish in picture book history, this tale of fish woe and triumph will make readers long for a pet as lovable as Gilbert.
