Description

From the creator of Not Quite Narwhal comes a classic tale of a boy and his dog--except in this unique story, one of them is a balloon! When Spencer gets a new pet, he's excited to do all the things that pets do--taking walks in the park, going to the vet, and attending parties together. There's just one hitch: Spencer's new pet is a balloon. And that means No. Sharp. Objects. No drooling dogs at the park. No prickly porcupines at the vet. And absolutely no pinning tails on any donkeys! Spencer's New Pet is a story of pure fun about a boy, his dog, and a friendship that endures life's sharpest...and most unexpected twists.

Review quote

*** "With many nods to silent film--including a black-and-white palette, elegant title cards dividing the story into three parts, highly dramatic close-ups, and iris shots--Sima (Love, Z) tells the nearly wordless story of a bespectacled boy and the dog he loves very much." - Publisher's Weekly, starred review
