Description


"I'll swap you my dad," I said.
"Oh-oh," said my little sister.

What if you wanted your best friend's two goldfish so much that you'd swap anything for them, even your father?

What if your mother came home and found out what you'd done?

The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish is a hilarious adventure and was the first book for younger readers from the acclaimed author and illustrator of the New York Times best-sellers The Wolves in the Walls and Coraline. Chosen as one of Newsweek magazine's Best Children's Books of the Year, The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish is beloved by readers of all ages. This new edition features brand-new jacket art and an afterword by the author on the origins of this unique and wonderfully funny story.

Praise For…


“Delightful.”

“A bittersweet, guffaw-out-loud story from the most distinctive partnership in picture books today.”

“McKean is in peak form here, with dark, spiky graphics that somehow manage to convey both sweetness and menace.”

“Leave it to Neil Gaiman to write a zany tale that’s swimmingly good.”

“An energetic, eye-catching volume.”
