Dial Books for Young Readers, 2018
For every child who wants a pet—or another pet—this is the perfect book.
Plum wants a pet, but dad is firm that he doesn’t want a pet, so Plum does only what a little child can do, pretend his dad is her pet! Her new pet loves to have its tummy rubbed and his ears scratched, but he refuses to roll over, eat her meals or be ‘paper-trained’ for his business. Her pet just won’t do the tricks she wants, until she comes up with a new approach, that works every time!
Moving illustrations are done in muted colors and accented with Plum’s bright greens and blacks and bright orange for the “No’s.” An imaginative, ‘what if dad were a pet’ story filled with humor.
