Goldfish Ghost was born on the surface of the water in the bowl on a dresser in a boy’s room. The boy’s room was pleasant and familiar, but Goldfish Ghost wanted company, so he set out to find a friend.
He floats over the neighborhood, past the pier, and let the breeze carry him into town where he discovers that not many people pay attention to goldfish ghosts.
Off he floats, searching for the perfect home and the perfect friend
and then he hears a voice. . .
Bestselling author Lemony Snicket and illustrator Lisa Brown brings us a fresh and funny take on what happens after your favorite goldfish crosses over to the other side.
Lemony Snicket is the author of far too many books for children, including The Dark, which won the Charlotte Zolotow Award, and 13 Words, which didn’t. Despite his best efforts, his series All The Wrong Questions and A Series of Unfortunate Events have allegedly sold more than 70 million copies and been translated into thirty-nine languages.
Lisa Brown is the New York Timesbestselling author/illustrator of a number of books for young readers. Recently, she illustrated the critically acclaimed Emily's Blue Period and The Airport Book for Roaring Brook Press. She lives in San Francisco with her husband, Daniel Handler, and their son.
