A No Sneeze Pet by Diana C. Gallagher Another Great MMGM Review!

Expected publication: August 1st 2013
About The Book: Kyle and Mia are determined to help their friend, Emma, find a pet that won't make her mom sneeze. But Emma doesn't want a pet she can't cuddle, and Kyle and Mia are running out of ideas. Will they ever come up with the perfect no-sneeze pet, or is Emma out of luck? —Goodreads
First Line: Kyle sat on the steps, waiting for his best friend, Mia, to come over.

Illustrator: Adriana Puglisi

Who: "I am a freelance illustrator, writer and story-teller with 20 years experience. I was born in Argentina and since 1995 I have lived in Granada, Spain with my husband, son, daughter, two dogs, a Guinea Pig, a little bird, and several fish. I love telling stories. As ideas often come at unexpected moments I always keep paper and pencils in my pockets and at hand when at home or in the car. I sometimes jot down a few words or a sketch, but usually both. I think that life is more beautiful when we fill it with stories." —Plum Pudding

What Others Are Saying: 
(Only found a couple of blogger reviews! Yay, book bloggers!)

"I would recommend this book for children from age 5 to age 8. The text is not too challenging for early readers or too simplified for more advanced readers. It is a low level reading book, but will be grabbed by animals lovers."—Kristi on Goodreads

"The story is cute and perfect for young, new readers. It has a good message and great pictures." —Texas Library Lady-Reading Through Life

What I Thought: This is a simple strait forward story, but not to simple for older challenged readers. This is part of new series called Pet Friends Forever. It comes with resources for teachers to for use in What you see is what you get, but coming in under 100 pages it's packed with things to discuss.

  1. Love the idea behind this series -- pets make life so special. Sounds like some great upcoming reads for the younger set.

  2. Hi, Pam, This sounds like such a cute book. I know of families who can't have dogs and cats for pets because of allergies.

    BTW: thanks for stopping by my Fourth Wish blog and following. I'm following your blog now. Since you like the idea of historical fiction and art, you might like the review of Claude and Camille, a Story of Monet, that I posted on my other blog yesterday.

  3. Oh! I see you did stop by and are following that one too! Thanks so much. I'll be posting an interview with Stephanie Cowell next week sometime. And that was Claude and Camille, A Novel of Monet (not A Story of Monet). My fingers ran amock.


I would love to hear from you!
