I Want A Pet by Cathy Morrison

petWhen a little boy decides he wants a pet, he knows not any pet will do. But maybe the best pet is right under his nose the whole time.

Author/illustrator Cathy Morrison brings this adorable rhyming story about pets to life with her lyrical prose and charming artwork. The little boy visits the zoo expecting to find the perfect pet, but soon discovers the giraffe is too high and the moles are too low. On he goes through the zoo, until he stumbles upon just the pet for him in an unexpected place.

Morrison gets right to the heart of a child with this one. Kids and pets go hand in hand. I Want A Pet celebrates that relationship in a wonderful way. With silly moles and a swift cheetah, along with other zoo animals drawn to perfection by Morrison’s accomplished hand, this book will be one your child reads time and again. The illustration on the last page is perhaps the best.

I Want A Pet would make a great gift for your little animal lover.
