    1. Hieronymus Betts has some weird animals for pets, but there is something even more weird, smelly, gross, and ferocious than all his pets combined!

The Spanish also holds onto the book's rhyming aspect, which is good.

    2. The artwork in this book was quite good -- technically -- but not as much fun as I would have expected. The story left me, and more importantly, my six-year-old son, kind of flat. I think because the set-up was greater than the denouement.

    3. A light-hearted little rhyme about a boy with fantastic and horrific pets. Each pet has it's own special attribute - being either the stinkiest, or the scariest, etc. But one "pet" in particular seems to trump them all!Really interesting and engaging illustrations.

    5. Story about brothers and gross stuff. Detailed pictures and lots to talk about if you're ready to discuss snot!
