My Review

This young author has a wonderful writing style! Stanley and Katrina continue to antagonize each other in book 2 and are in prime form. One memorable character is an alien guinea pig, named Zorg, who gets stuck in the cookie jar and blurts out celery, when nervous. The pet banter is hilarious and makes for a zany read that youngsters will find entertaining. Short chapter stories about these non-compliant pets will keep the readers’ attention. The Pets’ observation reports are included as is the narrator’s random commentary that adds to the humor. A fun pet friendly read!

  1. Yay! We are thrilled to have you on our Book Blasty Tour, Lobo! Thanks for the paw-riffic review and the kind words. Zorg is off in a corner mumbling about celery – we wonder what he is nervous about, today.
