Sophie's Fish by A.E. Cannon; illustrated by Lee White ****

A young boy imagines all the disasters that could come his way after he agrees to pet sit his friend's fish while she is away.  He calms down just in time for the fish to arrive and a surprisingly shocking ending to greet him.  I love the touch of humor and the mixed media illustrations dominated by watercolor and collage provide a fascinating back-drop for the story.
