I Want a Pet
This little girl really wants a pet. But what kind should she get? After all, lions have a habit of snacking between meals and boa constrictors are a little too friendly ...Lauren Child's story of a small girl's search for the perfect pet is sure to delight grown-ups and children alike.
"Set against backdrops of various bold colors, Child's deceptively simple art features a winsome character, defined by a strong black line and exhibiting droll expressions. A playful approach to a universal yearning of children." -- "Publishers Weekly"
