All is well at the end though, when Fluffy comes to live with him.
J.Prather
The illustrations are very simple, but they're so colorful and imaginatively well done.

My daughter was enthralled with the story and it is one of her favorites.

My 4 year-old son asks me to read this book every night, so I ordered another copy because the first one was starting to get damaged from so much use. I highly recommend it.

This is one of my all-time fav children's books. I've read this not only to my own kids but have also shared in the classroom. Creative, beautiful illustrations...and a beginner mystery.

Gilbert Goldfish is a fun and colorful story! We read it several times a day and have a great time acting out parts of the story.

Its funny and at the same time heartwarming to read of each failed attempt at finding a pet for Gilbert to call his own. The illustrations are very simple, but they're so colorful and imaginatively well done. At the end of the book I couldn't help but think that this would make a great short cartoon.

A really fun book and highly recommended.
