Memoirs of a Goldfish
by Devin Scillian
Kids Wings Top Flight Book
2012 Caldecott Honor Book

Have you ever wondered if your goldfish liked his life in a fishbowl?
If he could talk, you might be surprised at what you learn, but since he can't talk, you are lucky that he can write!

In Memoirs of a Goldfish one goldfish writes the story of his life, the ups and downs in his goldfish bowl, beginning with Day One. At the beginning, Goldfish is happy just swimming around his bowl all day and all night (goldfish don't sleep, you know.)

On Day Four, he gets an unwelcome companion, a hyperactive, unfriendly diver that never talks, just bubbles.

On day Five, plants are added to his world, and he bemoans the new chore of having to water his new garden.

From then on, his fishbowl world seems to get smaller as more and more guests drop in. Your students can watch the language structure parallel the growing community...from simple sentences to compound and complex sentences.

Memoirs of a Goldfish by Devin Scillian will be a welcome, hysterical addition to your library!
