Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ernie is an ambitious young entrepreneur who runs pet funerals. Business is good--there are a lot of dead bunnies and expired ant-farm colonies--but it goes through the roof once he hires Swimming Pool, a tomboy who's a great crier. However, Ernie gets greedy and refuses to give Swimming Pool the raise she deserves. So Swimming Pool goes out on her own. She soon misses being part of the team, but neither Ernie nor Swimming Pool will admit that they need each other. This is a hilarious, touching book about commerce and friendship.
