What Pet to Get?

Submitted by Catherine from Lexington Park!
Every kid wants a pet. But which pet will be best for the family? This is the question posed in the book What Pet to Get? written and illustrated by Emma Dodd. In the story, Jack tries to convince his Mom that a polar bear might be a great pet. Luckily Mom reminds Jack that polar bears don’t like central heating. Dinosaurs are out too, due to being extinct. “What a shame,” says Jack. The book progresses through a series of animals, with wonderfully bright illustrations that seem to pop off the page. At the end of the story, Jack and his Mom work out a compromise that delivers quite a pet into their lives.
