You Can't Walk a Fish by Lisa Funari Willever
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the second book in the Matthew McFarland series and Matthew is back! This time, he wants a dog, but unfortunately, his father doesn't agree. He explains that a dog will be too much work and suggests a fish. Determined to prove his father wrong, Matthew offers to dog-sit his neighbor's puppy. Will a week spent with Puddles be everything Matthew wished? Told in humorous rhymes, this story is a must for every kid who loves a pet and every kid who would love to have a pet. Like all Franklin Mason Press titles, a portion of each sale benefits our charity partner, The Four Foundation. In addition, two pages are saved to publish the work of 6-9 year olds through our Guest Young Authors and Illustrators Contest. This contest has become immensely popular with schools, teachers, and parents and a large part of our marketing program. Other marketing aspects for this title are "Easter", "Spring", and "Teamwork".
