Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Originally published in 1980 (Greenwillow), this story of a young boy's wish for a puppy has new, full-color illustrations that enhance the brief text. Done in watercolor and colored pencil, the humorous pictures show why the gerbil who cries all night long, the chameleon who glows pink and orange and purple all night long, and the frog who chews on furniture, are just not suitable pets. When the pet shop owner and his parents assure him that these animals will not cry, glow, or chew, John replies, `` `Mine will.' '' On their third visit to the store, his parents allow him to choose a puppy who will, : of course, be a perfect pet. This is an amusing story for reading aloud, and it's easy enough for beginning readers. The bright illustrations and clearly presented text will appeal to children, especially those who know exactly what is right for them. --Mary Rinato Berman, New York Public Library
