Fox knows his very best friend Goldfish is dying and takes him on a memorable tour of the whole world before he does. Apart from the gloomy first page the book is alive with colour and life and has many spinoffs. Goldfish is sent off with great style and love and this would be a very positive book to use in a family where a pet is dying. .

It is exciting to see that although Book Island Ltd has moved from Raumati, Kapiti Coast New Zealand and is now operating from Bristol UK, their books are still going to be available to us here in NZ bookshops.
