Viking, May 2017
 
Splotch was meant to be in his bowl when his boy got home from school–but he isn’t there! There’s only one conclusion: he must have run away. But when he mysteriously returns, all is well again. Except…Splotch’s distinctive spot has moved and the only explanation is that he has been CHANGED BY ALIENS! When the spot moves yet again, it’s clear something fishy is going on. This hilarious story poses the question that, when it comes to this family, who is protecting whom?

Reviews
".....Despite the dead fish, this isn’t about grief; it’s about anxious, humane, funny attempts to protect loved ones from sadness." - Kirkus

"...The work is amusing, making light of a possibly upsetting scenario while simultaneously giving credit to the wit and cunning of children." - School Library Journal
