This is a cute early chapter book. It's aimed at kids ages 6-8 that are fairly proficient readers. Kyle and Mia take it upon themselves to help their friend Emma find a pet that won't irritate her mom's allergies. They explore several options before finding the perfect pet. The story is cute and the writing is smooth. The plot isn't terribly exciting, but there are some fun animal facts your kids could pick up by reading it. It also helps kids understand how to make responsible choices when it comes to purchasing a pet. The illustrations are in full color, which is nice, but I wish there had been more of them. My kids really wanted that extra visual to go with the story.
