Praise for ONE AMAZING GOLDFISH

“Three cheers for Norman the amazing goldfish—and this charming story! This is a fun read whether shared with the group or a child in a lap. The story moves quickly, and the bright, mostly full-bleed artwork will keep the attention of young readers.” —Kirkus Reviews


Can Norman the amazing goldfish overcome his stage fright? A much-awaited new adventure from the creators of Not Norman.

Norman is one amazing goldfish! His owner knows Norman is sure to dazzle the crowd at Pet-O-Rama with his circles, bubbles, and flips--even though some kids don't think a goldfish is a good pet. But when Norman is finally on stage, he freezes up and hides behind his plant. Poor Norman! Luckily, his owner plays a familiar song on the tuba, helping Norman to relax and show the crowd how amazing he really is. The popular stars of Not Norman return in a warm and wryly funny new story about being there for your fishy friend when he needs you most.
