So you really want a pet? The dog will turn your house into a gym if you don't walk him, the cat will join a gang if you don't bring it in at night, and the rabbit will begin looking like a walrus with nothing to chew. These humorous but cautionary tales show kids why they should be careful what they wish for... or at least be prepared for the responsibility.

School Library Journal
11/01/2013
Gr 1–3—Humorous and lighthearted introductions to the pleasures and responsibilities of pet ownership, these volumes have two font sizes: the smaller one moves the text along while the larger one screams off the pages with questions and suppositions. Dialogue bubbles have the potential pets talking. "You're my only friend, shoe. Can I call you Shoezanne?" bemoans a dog as it chews on a slipper. "I'm a little hoarse," says a horse. At the end of each title, the animals are asked, "But do you really want a person?" The cat, dog, horse, rabbit, bird and hamster all do, of course. An appended quiz asks, "Is this the right pet for me?" Hilarious cartoon illustrations match up perfectly with the breezy texts. Solid care guides for very beginners.
