There's A Book

Gilbert Goldfish Wants a Pet by Kelly DiPucchio and Illustrated by Bob Shea

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.

I’m absolutely in love with everything about this adorable little picture book by Kelly DiPucchio! What’s more surprising to me though is the treasure trove of picture books by Kelly! It’s hard to believe I haven’t stumbled on her books before, but I’m so glad I have now. She has an incredible collection and I absolutely plan on reading them all!
