What happens when you expect an itty-bitty kitty . . . but get a lion instead?
It's kitten delivery day, but--SURPRISE. Congratulations on your new LION! We know you ordered a kitten, but we ran out of those. Fortunately, the big cat comes with instructions--like, try very hard NOT to look like a zebra. Or a gazelle. And give your lion PLENTY of space to play. But soon the feathers and fur start flying and everything's in chaos. Is there any way a lion could actually be a child's purr-fect pet?
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "It's a common enough problem: ask for a kitten, receive a lion instead. Luckily, Sauer (Mary Had a Little Glam) has readers covered in this step-by-step guide to a singular pet, which adopts the dry tone of an owner's manual. Countering that deadpan writing is Cummings's (Little Red Gliding Hood) boisterous artwork, a mix of schematic-style diagrams and vividly exaggerated cartons starring a boy and the enormous yellow lion that arrives in a crate. "Try very hard not to look like a zebra. Or a gazelle. Or a bunny," advises Sauer in step three; Cummings shows the boy frantically covering up his rabbit T-shirt. If one does accidentally get eaten, worry not-a simple, tickle-inducing feather is all that's needed to remedy the situation, a process depicted in a series of Ikea-esque labeled diagrams. Humorous details are everywhere, from the stack of pizzas delivered to satiate the lion (toppings include rhino and antelope) to the lion's house-cat-like tendency to sleep in sunbeams and on top of the fridge. Ages 3-up. Author's agent: Laura Rennert, Andrea Brown Literary. Illustrator's agent: Ronnie Ann Herman, Herman Agency. (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
