My Pet Book: 10/11/15

My Pet Book by Bob Staake: Books are fun to read but as pets?

On of the go-to topics for picture books is the child who wants a pet but their parents won't allow one. The child has to do everything imaginable to prove their readiness as a potential pet caretaker. They also usually end up with an unusual pet.

In the case of My Pet Book by Bob Staake, the pet in question is a book. In this case, it's a boy and his pet book. He puts it on a leash and drags it around town. It becomes his main obsession — something to read where he goes, no matter what else is happening.

So of course the book gets left behind somewhere. The boy goes on a frantic hunt around town to get his book back. So the question with this book, is this a book about being a responsible pet owner, or a book to encourage children to like reading?

Three stars
