So Miss Wright decides she needs a pet to keep her company.
But finding the perfect pet may not be as easy as it sounds. A mynah bird is too quiet, a cat makes her sleepy, and a hamster running around on its wheel makes Miss Wright dizzy. What's a lonely writer to do?
As the happy ending to her story, Miss Wright finds not only the perfect pet but also the perfect helpmate to her work.

Of EVANGELINE MUDD AND THE GREAT MINK ESCAPADE, he says, "All of us should have a person like Evangeline in our lives. For me, it's my sister, Glory. Even today, I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see her rolling up my driveway on a unicycle."
