How can you resist this little picture book the pictures are just too adorable!
This is a story of a critter who wants a pet. None of the adults want a pet. So he sets out to convince them.... with a pet itch. Although the story line is fantastic it is the illustrations that bring it all together so brilliantly. The pictures capture the essence the author writes of. They are bold, bright, funny. So is the story.
This really is one that I would purchase over and over for any little one needing a gift.
Take a look at these few pages and you will see what I am meaning by the brilliance of the story/picture connection:
And what about this one:
