The Pet Project: Cute and Cuddly Vicious Verses

The Pet Project: Cute and Cuddly Vicious Verses - Lisa Wheeler, Zachariah OHora Full review at http://thebookshelfgargoyle.wordpress.com/2013/08/02/two-quirky-picture-books-read-it-aloud-if/

This 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 more 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.

The illustrations are quirky and humorous and add a great deal to the appeal of the book.
