Katherine Fluty (keikodesuu) | 6 comments I read this book probably in the early to mid-90s. What I remember, it's about a white bunny** who keeps begging his mom to let him have a pet, and I think he keeps bringing pets home and she won't let him keep them. I might be wrong about the end, but I think he says he wants a dinosaur and brings home either a balloon or a cloud shaped like a stegosaurus?? I bought it at a garage sale so it could be from '95 or before. Possibly more stories beyond the pets, but I can't remember... any help is appreciated!

**Sorry, he was actually a bunny, not a mouse. I don't know why I wrote mouse...

Katherine, is this a picture book or a chapter book?

Can you describe the illustrations - cartoony/realistic/whimsical, simple/detailed, bright/pastels/dark/black&white, etc.?

Katherine Fluty (keikodesuu) | 6 comments If memory serves, it's definitely a picture book, possibly pastel, but colorful. I think the illustrations could be best described as being more realistic, as far as clothes-wearing bunnies go haha. But I think a little more cartoon-y in the facial expressions and eyes. My descriptions are probably very poor, I apologize! It's been 20 years lol!

It's a very thin book, like maybe thin enough to hold the spine together with a couple staples. I think the overall color was a light baby blue color.

Katherine Fluty (keikodesuu) | 6 comments Gosh, I wish I could remember those details as well, but I don't :( I only recall that he brings home either a big balloon or a cloud shaped like a dinosaur on a leash haha
