A Pet for Miss Wright is a delightful story
for young children ages 6-10 years old about an author and her
day-to-day struggle to produce good writing. It is wonderful
and inspiring for children to think about real people writing books!
The story goes on to tell how Miss Wright's home is too quiet,
so she brings in one pet after another until she finally brings
home a dog who acts as her "editor." The whimsical watercolor illustrations
bring the story to life, humorously showcasing one writer's experience.
The author, Judy Young, has written several books published by
Sleeping Bear Press, including The Lucky Star, R Is for Rhyme:
A Poetry Alphabet, and A Book for Black-eyed Susan. A
Pet for Miss Wright retails for $15.95 and would be especially
helpful for children who are having difficulty connecting with
literature or are developing into reluctant writers. Enjoy!
