Summary
A coming-of-age middle-grade graphic novel featuring a girl with severe allergies who just wants to find the perfect pet!

At home, Maggie is the odd one out. Her parents are preoccupied with getting ready for a new baby, and her younger brothers are twins and always in their own world. Maggie loves animals and thinks a new puppy to call her own is the answer, but when she goes to select one on her birthday, she breaks out in hives and rashes. She's severely allergic to anything with fur!

Can Maggie outsmart her allergies and find the perfect pet? With illustrations by Michelle Mee Nutter, Megan Wagner Lloyd uses inspiration from her own experiences with allergies to tell a heartfelt story of family, friendship, and finding a place to belong.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ten-year-old Maggie is having a rough time. Her twin brothers are pests, her parents are focused on getting ready for the new baby, and she's had to switch schools. Worse, she's finally convinced her parents to let her get a dog, only to find out that she's extremely allergic to animals with hair or feathers. She tries fish, lizards, and even hermit crabs, but nothing scratches the itch of having a pet the way a dog would. When Maggie and her best friend sneak a pet mouse into her room, figuring a small furry animal can't be as bad as a big one, the fallout is more than she bargained for. Maggie's reactions to her situation are consistent with the way most tweens would feel, and her biracial family tracks as caring without coddling. The artwork is clear, with few backgrounds; the colors are vibrant with only a little bit of shading, and the outcome is unsurprising, like many graphic novels published for this age range, making this title easy to recommend."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This sincere graphic novel follows 10-year-old Maggie Wilson, who, hoping to adopt a puppy on a birthday visit to an animal shelter, instead learns that she's highly allergic to any animal with fur or feathers. The discovery compounds existing feelings of loneliness--her younger twin brothers have each other, her parents are preparing to welcome a new baby, and Maggie's starting at a new school thanks to redrawn boundary lines. New neighbor Claire, an only child with a permissive artist father, is a promising friend, and both appreciate the other's family until Claire gets a dog, and Maggie feels betrayed by both her body and her bestie. The girls resolve their differences through honest conversation, and Maggie begins to find her place in her family and her way to new passions. Debut illustrator Nutter's realistic art cues Maggie and her siblings as biracial against a suburban Sacramento, Calif., backdrop. In this warm and well-paced story, Lloyd (Paper Mice) shows with nuance how empathy and connection can help a person navigate circumstances outside their control, making this an encouraging tale for young readers engaging with the world of pets, family, and friendships. Ages 8--12. Author's agent: Ammi-Joan Paquette, Erin Murphy Literary. Illustrator's agent: Kelly Sonnack, Andrea Brown Literary. (Mar.)"
