“Lerch the fish is a very friendly fish, but there's one problem: There's no one to be friends with. The pebbles won't talk to him, the scuba diver won't talk to him, and the bubbles just ran away and popped. But then the cat sees Lerch in the tank and comes over to see him. Will this finally mean a friend for Lerch, or is it the end?”

A snazzy story about friendship and true love
Lerch is one sassy, snazzy fish who seems to have it all: good looks, charm, a great sense of humor, and a perfect smile. But he's lonely (the bubbles and the pebbles ain't talkin' ) and wants to find a friend. But where? Then, with the help of an unexpected "admirer," Lerch meets Dinah, and it's true love from first glance.
