FUN FACT: The letters in the title on the original cover for Pet Show! were drawn by the kids who wrote to Ezra about his books! The publisher changed the letters on the cover, but if you look at the first page of the story you’ll still see the Pet Show! as drawn by kids in the early 1970s.
Have fun and learn more about Al, the quietest pet in the show!

FUN FACT: This book was originally going to be called Annie and the Pirate until a friend of Ezra’s suggested that the title character be named Maggie. Ezra often took suggestions for names from his friends.
We are eager to see the children in your life
get started on their way to a lifelong love of reading
