This was a fun one! Katie longs for a pet like no other, something colorful, unique, and extraordinary. She is gifted a mysterious machine to help her design this one-of-a-kind pet, and in the process of figuring how the machine works, spouts out dozens of new animals from a green bunny to rainbow-spotted horse. Despite their uniqueness, none is that “perfect” pet she had envisioned.
This book also has a fun STEM element woven into the plot. My kids enjoyed following along with Katie’s observations and tracking to figure out the formula of her invent-a-pet machine. Inventive and fun and sparked a great conversation about what our perfect pets would be!
