Gilbert Goldfish Wants a Pet

Written by Kelly DiPucchio, Illustrated by Bob Shea

Loved Gilbert Goldfish! Gilbert is a goldfish who really, really wants a pet. There comes a dog, but it is too noisy. A mouse, but he sniffs a round and doesn’t come back. A fly, well, someone makes sure the fly doesn’t come back! And finally a pet that he can love. What is it? The book makes you wait to the end to see what it is. Cute story and fun illustration make this book a must for your library!

  1. Thanks for posting this, can’t wait to share this with some of my classes! It seems like a perfect fit for preK – 2.
    Especially in Kindergarten when the children talk about pets.
