Book Description: Could you say no to a sweet little pet with nowhere to go? How about a pet with big green, watery eyes and eight squiggly legs just made for cuddling? All you need is a big heart, an understanding parent, and a house that isn't just a home it's a complete zoo! Dan Yaccarino sets this comic tale in motion with bright, bold art that bursts off the page. This story will make any parent or child who's ever confronted a sweet, homeless ball of fur consider carefully and laugh out loud. Dan Yaccarino is the illustrator of M.C. Helldorfer's Carnival and the author/illustrator of If I Had a Robot of which Kirkus said, "Vibrant colors in geometric shapes spill across the pages...Yaccarino keeps the visual suspense going."
