Prudence Wants a Pet

Cathleen Daly
illustrated by Stephen Michael King 2011

Charlotte and I loved this funny book!  Poor Prudence really wants a pet.  But her parents tell her NO.  So this cute, imaginative girl comes up with her own "pets".  Like "Branch" and "Twig" and an old shoe named "Formal Footwear".  Her determination to care for her own little creature is adorable and the scenarios are pretty funny.


  1. I just wanted to say that I love this blog, so thank you for the time and energy you put into it.
    If you don't mind a little suggestion, I find that (google) searchboxes can be very helpful on blogs like yours, and they aren't really very difficult to add.
    Again, thanks for all the books you share. I lived in Switzerland for 5 years and would sigh and put many many books on my to-read list on goodreads, and now that I'm back in the States it is thrilling just to be able to check three different libraries to see if they have it and put it on hold, all ready for me to come and pick up!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement and tip! I'll have to figure out the search thing.
