Recently published: You’re in Good Paws by Maureen Fergus

This book combines fact and whimsy to amusing effect. The story is about human boy Leo who will be having a tonsillectomy. He goes to the hospital with his parents only to find that it is run by animals. Some of the staff treat Leo like an animal, asking things like if he was the runt of the litter and when he had his last rabies shot. He is given a cone collar after surgery until he assures the staff that he will not eat from the floor or chew on his leg. Mixed in with the vet facts is information on what happens when a child’s tonsils are removed. Young children and parents may well enjoy this entertainingly illustrated effort to demystify and find fun in a situation that children do not tend to see as funny.

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this read. All opinions are my own.
