I LOVE this book!
This is an all time favorite book of mine. It's all about a kid who trades his dad for 2 goldfish and has to find his dad who has been traded many times following. My dad read it to me when I was little and I've loved it ever since. As an audiobook, Neal Gaiman himself reads it, so you really understand the humor that he put in.
