Any kid (or adult) who has ever owned or wanted a pet will love these furry, feathered, slimy, and scaly stories.

"The House of a Million Pets" is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Hodgman may not have had a dragon like Hagrid, but her tales are equally engaging, truthful and funny to readers of all ages. She's a James Herriot for the 21st century. "Kirkus Reviews"
