No one knew how Mr. Sticky got in the fish tank.
"He's very small," Mother said as she looked at the tiny water snail. "Just a black dot."
"He'll grow," said Amber who pulled her pajama bottoms up again before she got into bed.
In the morning, Amber jumped out of bed and switched on the light in her fish tank.
Gerry, the fat orange goldfish, was dozing inside the stone archway. Jaws was already awake, swimming along the front of the tank. His white tail was floating and twitching. It took Ambera while to find Mr. Sticky. This was because he was clinging to the glass near the bottom, right next tothe gravel.
At school that day, Amber wrote about the mysterious Mr. Sticky. Mr. Sticky was so smallyou could mistake him for a piece of gravel. Some of the girls in Amber's class said he was a perfectpet. They kept giggling about it.
That night, Amber turned on the light. She found Mr. Sticky clinging to the very tiniest,waviest tip of the pondweed. It was near the water filter so he was bobbing about in the airbubbles.
"That looks fun," Amber said. She fed the fish, and then lay on her bed. She watched her fishchase each other round and round the archway. When they stopped Gerry began nibbling at thepondweed with his big pouty lips. He sucked Mr. Sticky into his mouth then blew him back out againin a stream of water. The snail floated down to the bottom of the tank among the colored gravel.
