The Birthday Pet

The Birthday Pet
by Ellen Javernick
Ill. Kevin O'Malley
unpaged picture book
It's Danny's birthday and his parents said he could get a pet. After much consideration he decides on a turtle. His family doesn't think much of his choice and try to persuade him to change his mind. The Birthday Pet is cute and rhyming, though some of the rhymes are a little forced. The illustrations are adorable and full of character.
