Fairy Tale Pets

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Jorge Martín. Bob's life with his dog Rex "was perfectly neat and fine, except...they were very, very poor." They start a pet-sitting business, but when fairy-tale characters begin dropping off their animals, trouble ensues. The house gets wrecked, culminating with a "puppy" (a.k.a. the Big Bad Wolf) blowing it down. Clever nods to the familiar stories, loads of sound words, varied typography, and childlike art capture the book's playful spirit.
