What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A unique solution is found when a little girl dreams of getting a pet. Gwendolyn longs for a pet. What kind? Any kind! How many legs? Two, four, ten–she’s not picky! But her parents have other ideas, and instead they give her . . . a box of dirt. It smells of swamp, Gwendolyn says–but her parents say it smells of possibilities. And once Gwendolyn gets savvy about seeds and soil, sun and shade, she finds they are right. The dirt starts performing some amazing tricks, and soon she has a whole pet garden of her very own–it might not have any legs at all, but it was alive, and Gwendolyn could talk to it, care for it, and watch it grow. Dynamic illustrations full of funny details show the love Gwendolyn puts into caring for her pet, and her enthusiasm and pride are sure to inspire gardeners and aspiring gardeners alike.
