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.
A Neal Porter Book
"Goldfish Ghost was born on the surface of the water in a bowl on the dresser in a boy's room," writes Snicket (The Dark) at the outset of this melancholic looking-for-friendship story, using the fish's off-screen death as a new beginning. Brown (The Airport Book) draws Goldfish Ghost in black and white, surrounded by a world of color; he floats through the air upside-down, as any dead fish should. No one notices the ghost as he drifts over a seaside village and beach, looking for someone to talk to. Brown packs her watercolor-and-ink spreads with activity as families enjoy the salt air and seagulls wheel, yet none of it calls to Goldfish Ghost. Even among the ghosts of other sea creatures, he doesn't feel at home. At last, at the top of a supposedly haunted lighthouse, he finds "very good company" in the ghost of the lighthouse keeper. Goldfish Ghost is an enigmatic hero is he lonely, or just fussy? but Snicket's portrayal of the lighthouse keeper's intuitive kindness and Brown's subdued, moonlit landscapes resolve the story with moments of magic. Ages 3 6.
