There's A Book

A Pet for Petunia by Paul Schmid

Meet Petunia.

More than anything, Petunia wants a pet.

“I’ll feed my pet every day,” she promises her parents. “I’ll take her for walks. I’ll read stories to her and draw her pictures.”

Petunia knows she can take care of a pet, but what happens when the pet she most desires is a skunk?

Who didn’t want a pony or some other ridiculous animal as a child? Petunia is just that, but magnified a million times. I love this little girl and she’s inspired my own Littlebug’s love of purple and all things unique. Love it!
By the way…don’t you just adore Paul Schmid‘s illustrations?

Paul Schmid has recently released two other marvelous picture books, one is a follow-up to A Pet for Petunia:

    I adore the look of Petunia and the color scheme used! I remember when this book came into our store….it gave me pause. Didn’t know there was another…nor did I see the one about Pearl! How cute!
