Bummer. I like Ezra Jack Keats'
works, but Pet Show didn't really impress my niece or nephew. They listened to the story, and my niece, at least, thought that Archie's decision to bring a germ to the pet show was pretty funny, but this isn't one they'll remember.
I did a special voice for the little old lady in the story, and my niece said, "Why is she talking like that?" I said, "That's just how little old ladies talk." She replied, "Not all of them. Your mom doesn't talk that way, and she's pretty old." HA HA HA!!! I think Grandma needs a phone call.... :-)
