Juan, Ana The Pet Shop Revolution. Arthur A. Levine (Scholastic), 2011. $17. Content: G. PICTURE BOOK.
Mr. Walnut owned the saddest pet shop in Mina’s town. When Mina’s pet bunny disappears, she finds a way to sneak into the shop – freeing the trapped animals, along with her bunny. But the story doesn’t stop there – I will let you discover it for yourself.
The whole thing is quite absurd – but the illustratons and story are just so fun to read, you will probably forgive the absurdity, as I did. I want some of Mr. Winter’s creations for myself! And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the art work!
