A Fish Named Glub

A Fish Named Glub Book Cover As Glub the fish swims around in his glass bowl on the counter, he ponders big questions in life: “Who am I?” “What do I need?” “What is a home?”  He finds the answers he seeks by listening to the lively, colorful characters who eat at Foster G. Williker’s diner.  Through Glub, these characters, including Foster,  find answers of their own as they look into the bowl while Glub swims around painting pictures in bubbles of their dreams and long forgotten desires.  This power to show people their dreams comes in handy as Glub is able to help Foster achieve his desperate desires of adventure and change . Rich illustrations accompany lively, lyrical dialogue that alternates between humans and Glub’s personal thoughts. cc
