    21. Full review at thebookshelfgargoyle.wordpressThis is a really enjoyable picture book The poems follow on from each other, creating a narrative, and are jam packed with funny observations from the intrepid little investigator searching out the perfect candidate for pet hood The length of the text and the format would probably be suited to young independent readers, or alternately, make it a great option for a classroom read aloud on the subject of taking a scientific approach to decision making. [...]

    25. Clever idea for a book of animal poems, especially ones that are quite truthful I never had to do the research, my parents did it for me Thus, I did not grow up with pets mostly But I got to experience them later in life enough to know I m still not a pet person The first 1 2 of the last poem Conclusions fits me perfectly Very enjoyable Too long to share in a storytime, but fun to recommend.

    26. When a little girl asks her parents for a pet they challenge her to do her research and find the best pet for herself What follows are a series of poems about farm, zoo, woodland animals and that in one way or another aren t the right kind of pet to get.Funny poems about a huge range of animals set against acrylic illustrations I have too many favorites to list, but Pony, Hippopotamus and Polar Bear are fun.

    27. what a dilemma what pet to pick I enjoyed the small dog page, thinking first of the dog and not herself like with some other of the pet choices Love the research and field notes, most of the verses flow well, the illustrations are comical although the bunnies are referred to as Vikings wish their pictures showed them with the hats with horns Should be a great read aloud, especially for older children The Disappointments page would be good for a multiple meaning or idioms lesson.

    28. I LOVED this story book of poems A little girl who wants a pet is told by her parents to do some research first She observes farm animals, zoo animals, woodland creatures, pet store pets, and before finally making her decision a wonderful, twist ending that I won t share because I don t want to be a SPOILER Funny, must read out loud able poems with clever illustrations this is on my recommend list

    29. Lisa Wheeler s pizzazz is undeniable, and the quirky twist in this poetry collection is the underlying story When a girls asks her science minded parents for a pet, they make it an inquiry based mission for her to study and make notes on various possibilities The search takes her to farm, zoo, woods, home, pet store, and ends with a wise conclusion Excellent comic model of science investigations notes and much high level vocabulary is included in the mostly tight and well metered poems.
