Description

When award-winning poet Jorge Lujan wrote to children all over Latin America asking them about their pets, he received many funny, interesting and touching replies. The children described all kinds of pets -- not only dogs, cats and rabbits, but turtles, parakeets and even a marmot. They wrote about what their pets looked like, the amusing things that they did, what they were like when they first got them and why they loved them so much.

Inspired by these letters, Jorge shaped the children's thoughts and feelings into this wonderful book -- a perfect first collection of poems for young readers.

Editorial Reviews

The poems are amusing, touching and filled with the joy of life which can only be expressed through the exuberant words of young children with a story to tell...Highly recommended.

— CM Magazine

There's a lot to discuss with every poem here, a perfect mine of possibilities for family enjoyment as well as engaging classroom projects. Highly recommended.

— Toronto Star

All are given depth and flavor by Isol's sly, sophisticated spreads, which pair frenetic scribbles with similarly energetic washes of color.
