"Ashman's vivacious rhymes and Kaufman's lovingly detailed illustrations bring a far-fetched dream to life. . . . Highly entertaining." --The New York Times Book Review "Ashman's verses are bouncy, and Kaufman's brightly colored artwork will have readers poring over the details in her busy scenes and laughing at all the mischief. The people and their pets are diverse, especially the latter, which include an entire ant farm pulled in a red wagon, a hamster in a ball, a large snake, and a horse. This will certainly have readers yearning for pet days at their own schools." -- Kirkus Reviews "Sprightly rhymes by Ashman (Outside My Window) and cheery, mischievous pictures by Kaufman (All Are Welcome) make this both a good giggle and a cautionary tale." -- Publishers Weekly
