Norman: One Amazing Goldfish!

By Kelly Bennett
Illustrated by Noah Z. Jones

Can Norman the amazing goldfish overcome his stage fright? A much-awaited new adventure from the creators of Not Norman.

Norman is one amazing goldfish! His owner knows Norman is sure to dazzle the crowd at Pet-O-Rama with his circles, bubbles, and flips—even though some kids don’t think a goldfish is a good pet. But when Norman is finally on stage, he freezes up and hides behind his plant. Poor Norman! Luckily, his owner plays a familiar song on the tuba, helping Norman to relax and show the crowd how amazing he really is. The popular stars of Not Norman return in a warm and wryly funny new story about being there for your fishy friend when he needs you most.

  • At long last, one of Candlewick's staple backlist titles – Not Norman: a Goldfish Story – has a sequel!!
  • Not Norman has sold nearly 200,000 copies and is regularly reprinted. Our most recent reprint of the paperback was the 27th printing and was for 10,000 copies
  • The sequel is just as funny and just as sweet a story as the original
