Top Customer Reviews
They all sat watching a bear on television, including that messy neat and clean guinea pig. Ah, of course the "perfect pet" was a "huge shaggy brown bear!" Cool and fun because a boy could ride on its back and "watch the sun go down from his mountain cave." Sister claimed that you couldn't put one in her bed, but that a little "cuddly guinea pig" was just the thing. Not cool. Not fun. When he really thought about it, the perfect pet would be a "huge smoking dragon" that would even have wings and horns and fire from his nose!" Cool and fun, but what would his sister say?
This is a humorous and charming story about a little boy and his "perfect" pet." Of course his sister had that little guinea pig and nothing would budge her from thinking that it wasn't perfect. Naturally, a critter who is small and not very exciting is far from cool and fun. The little boy's imagination goes wild as he pictures all kinds of pets that would be perfect and not a one of them was called a guinea pig. His sister thinks that he "should give her guinea pig a try," but he's not so sure. The artwork is colorful, vibrant, and captures a little boy's imagination perfectly as we see some most unusual choices for the perfect pet emerge from the pages. If you have a little one who thinks a hulking gorilla or a rhino would make a perfect pet, you might just love this book!
