About this item

Fifty years after the publication of Robert the Rose Horse comes Joan Heilbroner's second Beginner Book?A Pet Named Sneaker, with illustrations by Pascal Lemaitre. A madcap tale reminiscent of The Cat in the Hat, Go, Dog. Go!, and Put Me in the Zoo, Sneaker is the story of a pet-store snake who longs for a real home. When he is finally adopted by Pete?a young boy charmed by Sneaker's uncanny ability to twist himself into different shapes?Sneaker not only proves himself a good pet, but proves to be a good student (sneaking into school with Pete and learning to read and write); a good citizen (saving a drowing toddler at a community pool); and a goodwill ambassador for the entire animal kingdom (inspiring the community to open the pool to all animals)! With delightfully understated, wickedly funny illustrations by Pascal Lemaitre, this is a fantastic, funny book that will sneakily get beginning readers reading on their own!
