Everyone was talking about the pet show. Everyone was going to bring their own pets. The next day they all got ready for the pet show. "Where's the cat?" Archie called. They searched everywhere but they couldn't find the cat. Suddenly, Roberto's mouse took off. Willie the dog chased the mouse. Roberto chased Willie. Peter chased Roberto. Susie chased Peter...and the show started! The judges walked up and down. Everyone got a prize for something. There was the nosiest parrot, the friendliest fishes, the busiest ants, and many more! As the last prize was awarded, someone yelled, "Here's Archie!" Next, Archie brought in a pet. You'll have to read the book to find out what kind of pet Archie brought.
This was a great story because it has a very exciting ending. This story reminds me of when I can't find something and at last I make a plan because that's what Archie does. I also like the story because the illustrations are like dark shadows.
I highly recommend this book because it is hilarious. I would want people who like imaginary and funny things to read it. People of all ages would love this book because it will make you laugh!
