Ann Hodgman's basement is home to three guinea pigs, a cage full of birds, a big gray rabbit, a prairie dog, a bulbul (look it up), two little rabbits, a hamster, and twenty-six pygmy mice. And that's just the basement.Would your parents ever let you have that many pets at once?
If Ann Hodgman were your parents, she'd let you.
Here is the true story of what it's like to live in her barnyard--er, house--with more animals than you'll be able to keep track of. 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.
