Written by Kelly Bennett

A boy received a fish named Norman for his birthday. The only problem is, the boy wanted a different pet; a pet to play catch and possibly climb trees with, a soft and furry pet is what he had in mind. The boy has an idea to take him to show and tell with the hope that someone would want him; Norman however finds his way into the boy’s heart and the more the two are together he sees how fun Norman is, and realizes he is also a great listener. When the opportunity arises for the boy to possibly get a new animal, he realizes how special his fish is and they make great music together.
