Description

When Leo arrives at the hospital, he is surprised to find it run by animals! A hilarious story featuring animals in human situations, perfect for fans of Zootopia and A Sick Day for Amos McGee.

Slightly distracted parents accidentally take their son, Leo, to the animal hospital to get his tonsils out.

Luckily, taking care of a human doesn't ruffle any feathers among the hospital staff. The chicken at the admissions desk is welcoming, the bear orderly is friendly and wise Dr. Stan inspires tremendous confidence despite being a mouse. Is the plastic cone really necessary, though?

In this sweet and hilarious story, a child discovers that a trip to the hospital can be a positive experience--even when the hospital isn't quite up to code . . .

Editorial Review

“For a child about to enter hospital for the first time, the contents of You’re in Good Paws actually provide a good overview of the various stages of care the child will encounter, from admission, through the various pre-op and post-op procedures, to being officially discharged." --CM Magazine
“With each read there is something new to find in the pictures, and the wry text makes it just as much fun for adults to read as it is for kids. Perfect for any kid worried about a trip to the doctor—or the vet.”--Kirkus Reviews
“The addition of animals add love, and affection, and empathy to the storyline because of their sweet demeanor, and cuddly appearance. Children who chuckle along with an absurd story will thoroughly like this book.” --Resource Links
