As the newest addition to the family scoots from one end of the house to the other, I have to find time to pick up the computer without his noticing. He loves to walk on the keyboard (thankfully, he does not weigh enough yet to type) and chew on the corners. So, time for reading is also rare since his arrival Sunday.
Babymouse #8 PUPPY LOVE is what we have come to love the intrepid Babymouse and her adventures. As the story opens, Babymouse has lost yet another goldfish. She convinces her mother to let her adopt a different pet. In the course of just a few days, Babymouse goes through a hamster, a turtle, a salamander, and various other pets before finding a lost dog. Presto! A new pet for Babymouse. Of course, the idea of a pet and the reality are two different things. Kinda like my better half who is constantly amazed at the new kitty's propensity to dash around the room, chew on anything within reach, and then crash for a few minutes while gathering energy for another dash.
