A cute little book about a child struggling for attention and companionship while his mother has to do the household chores. It's from the seventies, if you haven't guessed. The child keeps trying to bring pets home with increasing audacity as the mother struggles to keep finding reasons to reject his latest acquisition. It's fun and silly and the art does provide some nice in-jokes for the parents, but the coloring and fine-line work don't translate as well in the modern bright and clear artwork era. Still a nice little addition to the collection and good for early readers to read aloud.
