Prudence Wants a Pet, a young girl desperately wants a pet of her very own, but finds her parents feel quite differently. Each time Prudence’s request is met with simple rejection. And each time Prudence attempts to create a pet out of an inanimate object. From a branch, to a twig, to a shoe named “Formal Footwear”, Prudence is willing to give anything a shot at being her pet. When her parents agree to “sea buddies” Prudence imagines her long awaited wish has finally come true. However, in short time Prudence realizes her hopes may have been a bit high for a pet that “looks like pulp”. Will Prudence ever get the chance to have a real pet? Maybe one with fur or whiskers? Read the book to find out!
