My Pet Goldfish
An addition to Walker's Nature Storybooks series, focussed on the experience of bringing home a new pet fish. Narrated by a child in first person, with facts about goldfish peppered throughout the text - we learn about goldfish care and behaviour, and how pet goldfish can also thrive in outdoor ponds. The book closes with an index and a note from the author detailing how best to care for a fish.
Catherine Rayner's watercolour illustrations lend themselves perfectly towards depicting the watery world of Richard the goldfish, as well as the intricate diversity of different goldfish species.
