Description

Meet Petunia.

More than anything, Petunia wants a pet.

“I’ll feed my pet every day,” she promises her parents.“I’ll take her for walks. I’ll read stories to her and draw her pictures.”

Petunia knows she can take care of a pet, but what happens when the pet she most desires is a skunk?
