A Fish out of Water is a 1961 American children's book written by Helen Palmer Geisel (credited as Helen Palmer) and illustrated by P. Seuss), "Gustav, the Goldfish", which was published with his own illustrations in Redbook magazine in June 1950. You never know what." When the boy disobeys these instructions out of compassion for his new pet, Otto begins to grow uncontrollably, quickly outgrowing his fishbowl.
The boy then requests help from a police officer and the fire department, who help him take Otto down to the local pool. He is not surprised as boys always ignore his feeding instructions. Carp arrives, he dives into the pool and pulls Otto below.
There, they drop the fish in, causing it to expand to the size of the pool and scare off all of the swimmers. Eventually, he emerges with the fish, back to its normal size.
He refuses to say how he did it but tells the boy to never overfeed Otto again, and the boy takes his advice to heart.
"Gustav, the Goldfish", the short story that served as the basis for this book, was written and illustrated by Dr.
Seuss and published in the June 1950 edition of Redbook magazine as the first installment in his series of children's stories for Redbook.
