Marty McGuire Has Too Many Pets by Kate Messner & Brian Floca

Book Title:Marty McGuire Has Too Many Pets (Amazon link)
Author:Kate Messner & Brian Floca
Reviewer:Madison (age 11)
Marty McGuire really has her hands full this time -- with a lazy boa, a hyper hamster, and a potty-mouthed parrot! Is her pet sitting business about to go OUT of business?

After visiting a sanctuary for retired lab chimpanzees, Marty wants to follow in the footsteps of her idol Jane Goodall and help with their care. But "adopting a chimp" is expensive, so Marty and her third-grade pals hatch a plan to raise money by holding a talent show at school and opening a pet-sitting business in Marty's basement. It turns out that each pet has a personality of its own, and wrangling them is much harder than Marty expected. How will Marty keep her latest great idea from going to the dogs?
Introduction: This third grader is raising money to help the apes. She has to earn money but how?

Brief description: Marty has to pet-sit one python, two hamsters, two gold fish, one parrot, a snail and a hedgehog. Will she manage?

My favorite part . . .
is when Grandma Joyce found Houdini in her suitcase. It was really funny.

I'd recommend this book . . .
to anyone who loves animals and funny moments.
