Most pets are cats and dogs, but what happens when a boy wants a different kind of pet, one that doesn’t meow or bark? And so one boy decides to adopt a book, a bright red one. However, even pet books can go missing it seems.
This book was absolutely adorable, with fabulous illustrations and you know what I thought about the entire time? How ratty and tattered that poor book would be after a day of dragging it around the city. I know, silly, especially as this book appears to magically float, but that was my thought as I read it. The concept is supposed to be goofy and ridiculous and although I didn't get sucked in by the magic, I do think kids will. This is a book for true book lovers. There is a lot going on in the pages, which makes it better as bedtime story than a storytime book. Perhaps kids will begin adopting their own pet books?
