A young girl wants a pet. Her parents don't give her a definite answer, but they encourage her to research her options. The girl's research is interesting, eye-opening, and hilarious.
What I thought: Oh! I can't wait to share this with my 1st and 2nd graders when I do outreach storytime. They'll love it as I did. I laughed out loud several times while reading. My favorite poems are sheep (too true!), bunnies, and disappointments. I love the illustrations especially the bold black lines.
