The Number 23 : My name is Walter Paul Sparrow You can call me Fingerling

"You can call me Fingerling. It's not my real name, but comes from a book I read as a child, 'Fingerling at the Zoo.' Paper flap long gone, it had a green, hardback cover and
mottled texture, and was possibly my very first book. Funny, I can't recall what it was about, the only thing I remember is the name.'Fingerling.' I wished it was mine. Now it is."
