Featured Titles A Sweet New Listen from Jennifer L. Holm: THE FOURTEENTH GOLDFISH

“Believe in the possible…” That’s the magical message three-time Newbery Honor-winning author, Jennifer L. Holm, wants young listeners to take away from her latest audiobook, THE FOURTEENTH GOLDFISH.

With a lighthearted touch and plenty of humor, Holm celebrates the wonder of science and explores fascinating questions about life and death, family and friendship, immortality…and possibility.

Listening Library Sr. Marketing Manager, Jodie Cohen was eager to share a little magic of her own to spread the word about one of her favorite new titles, so she cooked up a sweet surprise for a recent Penguin Random House bake sale. The results certainly had us all believing anything is possible! (Just check out the photos.)

This creative cake—not to mention Jodie’s nautical nails—had the entire office talking about THE FOURTEENTH GOLDFISH. And while we wish we could share a piece of cake with each of you (trust us, it was delicious), we are excited to serve up this very first audiobook clip, adorably read by Georgette Perna. LISTEN HERE:

Our co-workers aren’t the only ones raving about this must-listen middle grade title. In a starred review, Booklist declared it “a great choice for book groups and class discussions as well as individual reading.” While School Library Journal said, “With humor and heart, Holm has crafted a story about life, family, and finding one’s passion that will appeal to readers willing to imagine the possible.”

We’re always excited to hear a new story from Holm, but when we found out that this beloved author also filmed a VIDEO to share her Top 5 Reasons Why Science Is Cool…well, that was just the icing on the cake. Watch it below and remember, THE FOURTEENTH GOLDFISH swims into libraries on August 26th! Also available in hardcover and ebook from Random House Children’s Books.
