This book is awesome. My husband, my daughter, and myself absolutely loved every second of it. The illustrations are perfect for the story and the character. It's so cute and silly, not to mention we had a few laugh out loud moments.
I love Pru's tenacity in trying to get her parent's to agree to a pet. The best part is when she ties a string around her "pet" shoe named Formal Footwear (she found the name inside the shoe) and takes it for a walk. My four year old daughter couldn't wait to flip the pages and see what else Pru decided to make into a pet.
Fun story with a persistent young heroine that my kids love!
