Spencer's New Pet

Jessie Sima (Author)
Available

Description

From the creator of Not Quite Narwhal comes a classic tale of a boy and his dog--except in this unique story, one of them is a balloon!

When Spencer gets a new pet, he's excited to do all the things that pets do--taking walks in the park, going to the vet, and attending parties together.

There's just one hitch: Spencer's new pet is a balloon.

And that means No. Sharp. Objects.

No drooling dogs at the park. No prickly porcupines at the vet. And absolutely no pinning tails on any donkeys!

Spencer's New Pet is a story of pure fun about a boy, his dog, and a friendship that endures life's sharpest...and most unexpected twists.

*** "An entirely immersive reading experience...younger readers...[will] be delighted by this heartwarming and suspenseful story of a boy and his dog, the ending of which will leave them eager for a second reading." - Booklist, starred review
*** "With many nods to silent film--including a black-and-white palette, elegant title cards dividing the story into three parts, highly dramatic close-ups, and iris shots--Sima (Love, Z) tells the nearly wordless story of a bespectacled boy and the dog he loves very much." - Publisher's Weekly, starred review
