"All good pets have fur.
Only strange pets have no fur."
Emma's brother, Max, wants a dog. But he can't have one because Emma is allergic to furry animals. With her birthday just a few days away, Emma decides that she would like a pet for a present. After a trip to the store, Emma finds the perfect nonfurry animal. Will Max like his sister's strange pet too?
Jean Little's heartening and subtly insightful tale about the ever-evolving relationship between siblings is underscored by Jennifer Plecas's captivating artwork.
