Paul is a goldfish. He used to just swim in circles. Until Bernadette arrived. Bernadette shows him the world outside of their fishbowl, but in the end Paul just wants to swim circles around Bernadette.
It's a fish love story with a sweetness that I haven't seen since Finding Nemo. Young readers will delight in how Bernadette doesn't quite know the names and uses of the various objects outside of the fishbowl. The art is beautiful and goes so well with the story, with a wonderful use of space and color. It's a quiet book, but one that I think would make a nice addition to anyone's picture book library.
