Jenny Offill

When her mother tells her that she can have any pet she wants as long as it doesn’t need to be "walked or bathed or fed,” an ingenious young girl orders a sloth through the mail. However, when the sloth arrives, she realizes that her newly acquired pet isn't very good at tricks. Or doing much of anything. Still, there's more to Sparky than meets the eye and the two form an unlikely bond. From the author of 17 Things I'm Not Allowed to Do Anymore comes a funny, touching book that is perfect for young animal lovers. Ages 3 to 6.
