TheTwo-Thousand-Pound Gold Fish

(1982)
A novel by

 
 
From the depths of the sewers comes a monster so gargantuan that no fishbowl can hold it

Warren Otis wants to make horror films when he grows up. But as an eight-year-old boy, he has to settle for imagining movies instead of making them. He's thought up some real nightmares, including Bubbles, an innocent goldfish flushed down the toilet and exposed to a chemical that turned her into a one-ton monster.

Warren's life sometimes feels like it's a bad movie. He hasn't seen his mom for three years, since she's a fugitive from the FBI. His grandmother's cranky and his sister's acting mysterious. When things get too strange, Warren escapes into his imagination and writes one more scene featuring Bubbles. But will he ever get a chance to share his story with the people he loves?

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Betsy Byars including rare images from the author's personal collection.
