9780152023614: Don't Take Your Snake for a Stroll

What would happen if your moose wanted to go to the movies? What if your rhino begged to go dancing? What if your pig pleaded to shop? Say "No!" Because, as the unsuspecting pet owner in this book learns, taking peculiar pets to people places can lead to pandemonium!
Karin Ireland's hilarious verse and David Catrow's wacky visuals just might convince you that sometimes it's best to leave your creatures at home.

About the Author:

KARIN IRELAND is the author of more than a dozen books for adults. Don't Take Your Snake for a Stroll is her second picture book. She lives in Austin, Texas.

DAVID CATROW is an award-winning illustrator of books for children as well as a political cartoonist. He lives in Springfield, Ohio.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-In this cautionary tale, a boy is advised not to take his unusual pets anywhere-"Don't take your skunk on an airplane," "Don't take your moose to the movies," etc. His pig will make a slobbery mess, and the snake will terrorize the neighborhood. The watercolor with black-line art is hilarious as each animal (rabbit, chimpanzee, frog, duck, and more) creates its own peculiar ruckus, and the boy's wide-eyed surprise suspends him in concentrated animation as the action swirls around him. Judith Barrett's Animals Should Definitely Not Act Like People (Aladdin, 1988) makes for simpler amusement whereas Ireland broadens the fun with four-line rhymes per page. At the end, the child holds his palm out to stop the pets as he walks with his oblivious parents and younger sister. His wise expression suggests that he will never go out with members of that motley group again. A verbal and visual treat.
