Do the children you love have a pet? Perhaps a dog, cat, or maybe a goat? Would they enjoy the opportunity to "invent" a pet of their own? Something unique and special? Well, the new book "invent-a-pet" may be a great pick for them!

Sterling Children's Books says; "Katie is an ordinary girl who longs for an extraordinary pet— something more spectacular than a simple goldfish. Then one day Katie comes home to find a gift from her mother: a mysterious machine designed to help her create a one-of-a-kind creature. Each time she feeds different items into the machine, out comes a marvelously colorful new animal—like a purple monkey, rainbow-spotted horse, and green bunny! But none of them is just right. Through trial and error, Katie figures out the formula for her absolutely perfect SURPRISE pet."

My grandsons were delighted by the imagination and fun this book brought to the idea of "inventing" a pet and thought about pets they may like to invent! This is a book children will enjoy reading, want to have read to them, and is sure to become a family favorite!
