bookshelves: topshelf

For his birthday every year this boy's uncle gives him exotic species he finds during his exursions, and one year he gives him a tadpole. The tadpole grows too big for the bowl, so it goes in a tank. Then it grows too big for the tank, so it goes in the tub. It really likes cheeseburgers around this time. When it gets too big for the tub, the boy puts it in the school pool, since it's summer. However, once classes start in the fall, the tadpole has to get out, so the boy is pretty upset. It's a pretty great story, and SPOILER ALERT the pet is not a tadpole at all.

Kelly Alphonse was not in a tank in the book, he went to the sink after his jar.
