Would you swap your dad for 2 goldfish? (rated 4 stars)

by Neil (Illustrated By Dave Mckean) Gaiman

This is a short funny tale about a boy who swaps his dad for 2 goldfish. We follow him as he tries to recover his father after his mom finds out. It’s really funny. He walks all over town swapping things because everyone passes his father along for something else, like a guitar and a gorilla mask. The little sister is really silly.

The illustrations by Dave McKean are not your typical light-hearted children’s book illustrations. They are dark in color with lots of sharp lines. I loved them.

Just a fun book to read with your kid.
