The Birthday Pet

The Birthday Pet

by Ellen Javernick

It was Danny’s birthday and his folks said he could get any kind of animal he wanted for a pet. Danny thought it over before he went to bed. “All I really want is a turtle,” he said. But instead, his family gets him a dog, a kitten, a rat, and a bird. Danny shakes his head after each gift is offered until he finally receives the present he’s wished for all along. Accompanying each amusing stanza are Kevin O’Malley’s cheerful illustration using design markers and colored pencil.
