His Majesty’s Goldfish

 Author: Hayashi, Leslie Ann

The Strong family is poor and teased the neighborhood boys. 8-year old Austin and his family have just arrived in the Hawaiian Kingdom. Here, goldfish swim in the horse troughs of the wealthy. But not in the Strong’s trough. Theirs is nothing but an old rusty tub. Then one day two visitors tell of a precious gift from their emperor to the king double-tailed goldfish. Immediately Austin is determined to catch a goldfish for his family’s trough. But when he arrives at the park, there is a warning: Fishing in the Park is strictly prohibited and will be punished with the full severity of the law, Kalākaua, Rex. Will Austin steal the king’s fish to forever stop the boys teasing? And if he does, is he ready to face the ultimate punishment?
