Too Crowded

By Lena Podesta

Published by Sourcebooks

ISBN: 9781728222387

Gil the goldfish lives in a fishbowl with 138 pebbles—he counts them every day—and a castle. It's too crowded! When Gil leaves his fishbowl in search of open spaces, he finds a loud, dangerous, dry land that is full of many interesting creatures but is not quite suitable for a fish. Thank goodness for Turtle, the new friend Gil meets in the not-so-great outdoors! Will Gil and Turtle make it back to the fishbowl, and will Gil make peace with his home sweet home?
