Description
A pocketable edition of a 1999 classic from Kate Greenaway Award winner Lauren Child, this book for readers 4 to 7 ponders one of the most challenging questions of childhood—choosing a pet. "Perhaps something with not too much fur," says Mum. "Maybe something that lives outside," says Dad. But the little girl at the center of this tale has a much broader list to consider. A lion? They are too fond of snacks between meals. A sheep? They follow you around too much. An octopus? They leave too many footprints. Could there possibly be a pet that doesn't do any of that? Fans of the Charlie and Lola books and television show will recognize Child's hilarious cartoon illustration style.

"Quirky, scratchy line drawings in bold colors complement an offbeat story about a young girl's yearning for an animal companion. A lion, a sheep, a wolf, an octopus, a boa constrictor, and a bat all seem like good choices—until their undesirable qualities are pointed out by family members.... Despite the apparent simplicity of the illustrations, closer examination reveals entertaining details, including the young narrator's outfits that change from page to page."—School Library Journal
