Blurb from goodreads:

Plum wants the perfect pet, but instead realizes she has the perfect dad in this charming and hilarious picture book that's great for father's day.

Plum wants a pet. Plum's dad wants NO pets. So Plum, who never takes no for an answer, gets the only pet she can: a pet dad. Dad is a great pet--he loves playtime, tummy rubs, and scratches behind the ears. But every time Plum tries to get him to sit, or fetch, or chase, dad barks NO. Plum doesn't take no for an answer. How will she train her perfect pet (without getting a time-out)?

Hilariously relatable and with ultra-cute art, Pet Dad is perfect for kids who love or want pets--or who already have the perfect parents to make up for it.

Bea's Thoughts:

Plum is a determined little girl who desperately wants a pet. When her parents turn her down, she turns her dad into a pet. But pet Dad is not as amenable as she would like so she has to get creative.

Plum is a sassy, determined, creative girl who is exasperating at times, and sweet and adorable at other times. I liked her perseverance and her ability to think outside the box. The story is sweet and funny, and relatable for any child who wants a pet but can't have one. The pictures are charming and I liked the mix of fonts which underscored certain aspects of the story. "Pet Dad" was a fun, enjoyable story.

Steph and Liam's thoughts:

When this book was offered, I thought it looked cute. Liam and I sat together and read it. Some of the words are written in big red letters and Liam read those very loud. When Plum was trying to train her pet dad, Liam thought it was hilarious. I was reminded of Liam trying to order me around at one point. Plum's idea of a reward to get her dad to do the things she wanted made me melt.
