In this beloved book written by Mrs. Dr. Seuss (aka Helen Palmer), a young boy hilariously learns the consequences of not following instructions when he feeds too much to his goldfish – causing it to grow as big as a whale! With delightful retro illustrations, the message of the book – that getting a pet is a big responsibility – is as true today as it was when the book was published in 1961. Perfect for beginning readers – and anyone getting a pet!
