Devin Scillain may best be known as a nightly news anchor on WDIV Detroit, but he is also an accomplished musician and children’s author with over a dozen titles to his credit, including the bestsellers A Is For America and Fibblestax. His latest title is Memoirs of a Goldfish, which tells the charming story of a simple goldfish and his solitary life that is upended when assorted intruders invade his fishbowl.
Memoirs of a Goldfish is the featured title for 2011’s Michigan Reads! Children Program, which highlights the importance of reading and sharing books with children, especially toddlers through early elementary, and to recognize the vital role libraries play in providing access to the quality books, programs and services that lay the foundation for reading and school success.
