This was the darkest, and yet most comforting, children's book I've ever seen Lemony Snicket write.

A pleasantly melancholic tale about the ghost of goldfish looking for a new friend.

This new picture book by Lemony Snicket is melancholy but also encouraging. It can be hard to find good company out in the world. It doesn't always seem to be where you might think you'd find someone whose presence is enjoyable. Recognizing when it's good to hang out with someone and when to move on can be a difficult skill. The illustrations also have a lot of sly hints and humor, so look carefully. And the short quote opposite the title page is lovely, "I can't believe you are gone out of my life. So you are not." - Audre Lorde

Melancholy and lonely, and might set children's imaginations wild as they wonder what ghosts of dead animals and people may be floating around them.... not great.

This one was too busy and not purposeful enough to be enjoyable, for me.

Goldfish Ghost has been alone his whole life so he goes out searching for friends. Intricate illustrations, heartwarming text and a comforting story that speaks plainly about death.

Its not easy to find a friend, especially when you have tried all the usual places. But Ghostfish doesn't give up until he does.
