Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Close-up, full page, color photographs of children of all races, genders, and abilities introduce readers to Patty's friends and their pets. A sentence about each friend fills in the details of the child's name and the type of pet. Patty, you see, is trying to select a pet of her own and is reviewing the pets she knows to see if they would be suitable. In bed, at night, the pet choices overwhelm Patty, and the illustrations change from realistic portraits to computer-generated imaginary animal-composites. The illustration style is innovative and the pet theme is one that many young readers really care about. Beginning readers may not mind, but their teachers and adult reading partners will certainly notice that some of the people and animal names are alliterative and some are not. This makes prediction, a huge part of reading enjoyment at this entry reading level, risky business... almost as risky as choosing the very best pet.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-In this imaginative picture book, Patty decides on the perfect pet. She considers the animals that her friends and relatives have chosen, but they don't suit her. In a cleverly done dream scene, she imagines a whole array of creatures, from the common to the exotic, and awakens with her mind made up. Patty's perfect pet is "friendly, can sleep in her room, and loves to play. Patty picks...a puppy!" The crisp, eye-catching photographs are filled with bold primary colors. A variety of perspectives are utilized, and computer enhancement is employed for the dream scenes. The characters are diverse in gender, ethnicity, and physical ability. Most of the text, which consists of one large-print sentence per page, uses alliteration: "Larry...has a lizard he calls Lucky." This title pairs well with Rotner's other offerings, especially Faces (Macmillan, 1994) and Lots of Moms (Dial, 1996).-Christina Dorr, Whitehall City Schools, OH
