There are so many books about pet cats and dogs, so it’s about time the humble goldfish has a spell in the limelight. As you’d expect from award-winning Catherine Rayner, My Pet Goldfish is a beautiful book; the illustrations are gorgeous, right through from the inside cover to the end.
A narrative non-fiction about her first pet, it has plenty of facts about goldfish and how to best look after them. Did you know that a group of goldfish is called a “troubling” or that the oldest ever goldfish was 43 years old? A must for any fish enthusiast or nature lover but also a wonderfully calming book to pore over.
