Booklist Review: "Many kids are interested in owning pets other than the ubiquitous cat or dog, and these titles in the My Pet series will help young people make informed decisions about which animal is right for them. Printed on glossy paper, the dynamic, colorful spreads combine sharply focused, close-up photos of expressive critters with passages of easily digestible text, organized by numerous headings. Each title addresses species, life cycle, physical and emotional needs, related costs, and choosing and caring for the animals. Passages about historical lore add an interesting counterpoint to the straightforward tips. Turtle discusses the reptiles' importance as a food source for long sailing voyages in past centuries. The final section, Pet Puzzlers, reviews key information presented earlier in the text and will further engage kids. Clear about the specific responsibilities of care, these titles are an excellent starting point for children eager to welcome a new animal into their homes (and to convince their parents that it's a good idea).--Engberg, Gillian Copyright 2010 Booklist"
