We love this book at our house! It is very fun to see all the benefits a book would have if it were a pet compared to all the downsides of actual pets. The illustrations are so fun and Bob Staake does and exceptional job with his rhyming!
We are big fans of Bob Staake, and while I don't think My Pet Book quite tops The Donut Chef, it's still a story we love to read and reread. It combines clever and original rhyming ("charity") with Bob's distinct illustration style. And since we love books around our home, we connect with the book's praise of books and reading.
Bob Staake has written and/or illustrated more than fifty books, including The Red Lemon, a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children’s Book of the Year. His work has graced the cover of The New Yorker more than a dozen times, and his November 17, 2008, Barack Obama victory cover was named the Best Magazine Cover of the Year by Time magazine. He lives on Cape Cod, in Massachusetts.
