About the Book
This is a story about a betta fish named Frank. Frank is more person than fish. He loves his people, he likes his routine, and he knows what he wants. Unlike most fish, he's very expressive and is more than capable of conveying his displeasure or joy.
After a journey full of ups and downs, Frank realizes that home isn't about where you live, it's about who you love and who loves you. Join Frank on his adventure to find his forever home!
A portion of all proceeds from Frank the Fish Finds His Forever Home will be donated to a non-profit organization supporting adoption.
"This is a gentle story where the events that occur are largely out of poor Frank’s control...Frank doesn’t set out on a quest or fight battles, but he is a different fish at the end than the beginning.
Frank the fish is cute as a button. He is a very wise, if apprehensive fish.
Children will learn that home is not about how big a place is or where it is, but about the love found there. Fantastic.
They’ll also learn that living beings need consistent care. A pet is not to be acquired on a whim.
This is a book that is beautiful to look at, and it would be a valuable resource for teachers as well. The story is well told, and the illustrations are wonderful."

“Cute story. I liked the premise and that they talked to him about moving later.”

"Everyone wants a home where they feel safe, cared for, and loved; the story of Frank the Fish captures this with honest and straightforward writing. The vibrant illustrations are immediately engaging and draw the reader in. The descriptions of Frank's living situations and of his feelings, especially learning to trust, are shared in a non-judgemental way. Frank has a hopeful and positive nature, and I like that he acknowledges his intuition at different points in the story. This is a wonderful book for all types of families! Can't wait to read the next book in the series!"

"Frank the Fish is a story about the importance of family and connections. This story explores adoption through the eyes of a fish who longs for consistency and love. But as Frank discovers, it’s not where you live but how you are loved that matters. The story of Frank the Fish will help to reinforce discussions about adoption and the importance of a supportive and loving home. It may also resonate with any parent whose child is begging for their first pet, unaware of the commitment required. This book would be appropriate for young children who are sure to fall in love with Frank as they follow him in his quest for family."
