About This Lesson

A hilarious, heartwarming picture book with subtle lessons about the importance of sharing, home, and friendship.

Gil the Goldfish lives in a fishbowl with 138 pebbles—he counts them every day—and a castle. It feels TOO CROWDED! When Gil leaves his bowl in search of open spaces, he finds a world full of many interesting…and loud … and possibly dangerous creatures.

It turns out that life outside the bowl might not be right for a fish. Thank goodness for Turtle, a citizen of the not-so-great outdoors who comes to Gil’s rescue! Will Gil make peace with his home sweet home, and maybe even find room for a friend in the process?

"The story is a satisfying balance of familiar and fresh, with an endearing protagonist and an especially timely message about isolation and connection... Utterly delightful." —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review
