"Some unexpected 'pets' act rambunctious in this high-energy pop-up featuring Staake's trademark cartoons. A 'hairy' pet (a doughy ape) plays a wild game of cards with blue and green children (the cards fly across the room in a pop-up arc); meanwhile, a 'toothy' alligator shows off his best assets as a 'cool' lion (dressed like a beatnik) plays with his drumsticks. The madness concludes with the pets catching a ride on a big, 3-D yellow bus: 'Now It's Time for School, Pets!' The goofy incongruity will win over young readers. A large zoo poster is included. Ages 4 8. Whether a sequel or well along in an established series, these titles should keep readers tuned in." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
