Mortimer brought a plant home for the summer. The plant, Plantzilla, was a special kind of plant. Plantzilla grew very large by eating real food, mostly meat. Mom and Dad became worried when Mortimer spent all his time with Plantzilla. The family Chihuahua went missing and Mom wanted to send Platzilla back. The Chihuahua came home and Plantzilla got to stay.
My favorite part of the story is when Platzilla ate hamburgers because it was funny. My favorite character is Mortimer because he is so loving to Plantzilla. This story reminds me that when you take care of people they grow. The pictures are beautiful.
Others should read this book because it is sweet and funny. It will make you laugh.
