Jacob O'Reilly wants a Pet,
but cats make Mom sneeze
and Dad is convinced dogs have fleas.
How many times does he have to ask before they finally give in?
A perfect book for pet lovers everywhere.
Jacob O'Reilly's desire for a pet, and what he does about it, makes for a delightfully funny story told in verse and complemented with wonderfully whimsical illustrations. If he can't have a dog or a cat, he'd be happy to settle for a gerbil, hamster, mouse, or even an iguana--but Mom and Dad don't agree. Jacob's imagination runs wild when he visualizes himself as the owner of a giant emu . . . or a walrus. Then the fun really begins when Mom and Dad decide to let him start up his own pet-sitting business. Suddenly, he's dealing with more pets than he can handle!
