SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- The Scarsdale Public Library will present children's author Sheela Chari at 1 p.m. Wednesday for a discussion of "The Fourteenth Goldfish" by Jennifer Holm.
Eleven-year-old Ellie has never liked change. She misses fifth grade. She misses her old best friend. She even misses her dearly departed goldfish. Then one day a strange boy shows up. He’s bossy. He’s cranky. And weirdly enough, he looks a lot like Ellie’s grandfather, a scientist who’s always been slightly obsessed with immortality. With a lighthearted touch and plenty of humor, Holm celebrates the wonder of science and explores questions about life and death, family and friendship.
