More About This Title The Pet Shop
The big skeleton and the little skeleton are fed up with the dog skeleton and decide to swap him at the pet shop. They start off with a goldfish but soon get tired of him and swap him for a parrot—but soon they get bored of him too. Eventually the pet shop owner gives them a box to take home with a surprise pet inside. What do you think it will be?

"Not at all scary, these creatures are fully fleshed-out and slightly goofy-looking. Bright colors contrast sharply with a midnight black background, creating a cheerful mood. Cartoonlike layout, repetitive language, and situational humor make these a good choice for beginning readers." —School Library Journal
