What Pet to Get?

Written & Illustrated by Emma Dodd

The best, most charming answer to every kid's question!

"Let's get a pet," says Jack one day. "I promise I'll look after it."

But what pet to get?

A crocodile!
Too snappy, says Mom.

A lion!
A bit too hungry, says Mom.

A shark?
Mom worries it won't fit in the bathtub.

But Jack has one idea so BIG and so SNEAKY, that even Mom can't say no!

Reviews and Awards

“Dodd creates a daffy, winning cast of googly-eyed creatures whose ids run rampant... Lots of fun.” - Publishers Weekly

"Dodd’s bold, broad, bug-eyed, in-your-face illustrations take this one over the top. The pictures run off the pages of the large format, which is a stage for comical and hilarious scenes... Giggles are guaranteed." - Booklist

"Funny foreshadowing and clever visual details abound." - Kirkus Reviews

"Everything about this book works." School Library Journal
