One of Susan's 5 Favorite Children's Books

— From Susan Recommends


"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?

Praise For…


“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.”
