Book Cover & Preview Text
Fast as a speeding swordfish. Brave as a daring dolphin. Kind as a papa sea horse. It’s SuperGoldfish!—protector of guppies and goldfish in the tank they all call home.
The fish families swim through the glass castle’s radiant rooms, poke their heads out the windows, and wriggle their happy fins.
Until one day—SPLASH!
Tiger Barb charges to the castle. He snaps his spiky teeth.”Mine!” This castle is mine!”
The guppies and goldfish flee.
SuperGoldfish rises up on his tail fin, “We all share the castle!”
“Skedaddle, puny fish!” Tiger Barb lunges at SuperGoldfish. He shoots a stinky bonk-bubble at him.
“Pee-yew!” SuperGoldfish says, “That’s disgusting.”
“Watch out, SuperGoldfish!” the guppies cry.
Tiger Barb shoots a stream of sticky bonk bubbles. Wonk! Bonk! Thonk!
“Ow-Ow-Ow!” Bubbles cling to SuperGoldfish.
“I’ll be back, Tiger Barb!”
SuperGoldfish uses his superpowers when peace is disturbed and Tiger Barb attacks the glass castle, guppies, and goldfish in their tank.
