Children’s Book Committee – March Pick

March 13, 2015



The Fourteenth Goldfish
by Jennifer L. Holm
Random House Books for Young Readers

When a strange boy shows up at her house and turns out to be her grandfather, eleven-year-old Ellie’s life changes and her interest in science grows. Cheerful black-and-white illustrations of goldfish. (9-12)

Young Reviewer:
This book is a cliffhanger. It was realistic fiction except for the science fiction twist about Ellie’s grandfather. I think it’s cool to see the grandfather as a teenager still with the intelligence of an older person. But Ellie shows real wisdom in the end and learns new things about herself.
– Dante, 10, East Hampton, New York
