Norman: One Amazing Goldfish Written by Kelly Bennett Illustrated by Noah Z. Jones
Age range: 4-8
Norman-“one amazing goldfish” is back, and he is being entered into a Pet-O-Rama contest. He and his human have been working on their routine-jumping through hoops and singing are his specialty. However, as the boy and Norman take stage, they both get stage-fright, leaving Norman with “fins and flippers quivering like crazy”. The boy has to think fast, he takes out his tuba, which cause Norman to relax, then dance like no fish is watching, while breaking into song.
