Gilbert has almost everything his fishy heart could desire: a magnificent stone castle, a treasure chest full of gold, and a feast of tasty flakes that falls from the sky just in time for breakfast each day.


But there's one BIG thing missing from his life: a pet. And so begins Gilbert's

harrowing search for the perfect companion.
