About the Author:

Hanson is a former children's and school librarian.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 3-An old man who "had lived alone for so long, nobody would have ever believed that one day he might go shopping for a pet" decides he wants an animal that doesn't bark too much like a dog or scratch furniture like a cat or eat too many peanuts like a parrot. The solution-a pedigreed flea. "She sleeps in a matchbox, hates fur, and never bites people." When the old man begins talking to his new pet, people in town become convinced he is crazy and have him hospitalized. This flea is strong though, and she manages to open the door to his room, and the two escape. Merrell's bright, rounded illustrations, reminiscent of the work of Mark Teague or Mark Buehner, are made to match a humorous story, but when paired with this outrageously silly tale, they just fall flat. For a meaningful tale of tolerance and friendship of things unseen by others, stay with Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who (Random, 1954).
