A pet!

Mom has agreed: Froggy can have a pet. Off to the pet store they go. Mom would prefer a bunny or some mice, but Froggy and his little sister, Pollywogilina, have their hearts set on a doggy. And when Froggy sees the little dog with big brown eyes, he begs to take her home.

Mom cautions Froggy about all the new responsibilities he will have taking care of Doggy, but Froggy's sure there will be no problem. He doesn't count on Doggy being more difficult to train than he expected.

Froggy always lands himself in a pickle, but he always bounces back. That's why everyone loves him!

Froggy fans will know that this youngster leads a complicated life! Nothing seems to be easy for him. In previous stories, riding a bike, learning to swim, baking a cake and even just getting dressed have all landed Froggy in quite a pickle.

In the latest story about this intrepid amphibian, Froggy is getting a pet.

At the animal shelter Mom tries to interest Froggy in a pet bunny, a white mouse or even a baby alligator. Nothing doing – his heart is set on a dog!

Soon a pooch with big brown eyes captures the hearts of Froggy, Mom and baby sister Pollywogilina. They adopt it and take it home.

Froggy soon discovers that Mom is correct - caring for a dog is a lot of work! It needs to be fed, bathed and walked. It needs to wear a leash away from home, and a “pooper scooper” is essential. A dog can get into lots of mischief, so it needs constant attention and supervision.

Froggy then makes another discovery … a pooch’s slobbery kisses, friendship and love make all the care and work entirely worthwhile!

This entertaining story, with its lessons about responsibility and pet care, is the 23rd title in the beloved Froggy series of picture books by Jonathan London, who has a special place in his heart for adopted pets.
