The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish

The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish Cover

 

 

Excerpt

One day my mom went out and left me at home with just my little sister and my dad.

My dad sat in front of the television, reading his newspaper. My dad doesn?t pay much attention to anything when he?s reading his newspaper.

My little sister and I played in the garden. My sister played with her Barbie dolls, and I played at putting mud down my sister's neck.

My friend Nathan came over to my house. He had a glass bowl with him. There was something in the glass bowl.

"What?s that?" I said.

"Two goldfish," he said. "They are called Sawney and Beaney. Aren?t they neat?"

They were pretty neat.

"I?ll swap you them," I said.

"What for?" asked Nathan.

"Synopsis" by , The creators of "Mister Punch" and "The Sandman" team up once again to take readers on a lavishly illustrated journey into the quirky mind of a young boy.
"Synopsis" by , A young man swaps his father for his friend's goldfish, and when his mother finds out, he returns the fish to his friend, only to be sent on a long series of trades to get his father back.
"Synopsis" by , The stories we tell are not limited to monsters and harsh otherworlds. Yet the fiction books in the Borealis imprint certainly belong to a world other than our own. This line encompasses our science fiction, fantasy and horror novels and anthologies.

Teaming up once again, Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean take a lavishly illustrated journey into the quirky mind of a young boy. Written for both the young and the young at heart by the creators of Mister Punch and The Sandman, The Day 1 Swapped My Dad For Two Goldfish is a bargain that every reader will get the best of!
