Where is the perfect child? A humorous, roundabout search leads back to the reader.
Fido Farnsworth, the cleverest, smartest, coolest dog in the whole world, is faced with his hardest job yet. How will he ever find the perfect child? Is the perfect child artistic (say, fond of painting on refrigerator doors)? Does he enjoy keeping pets (like an enormous tiger on a string)? Does she have lots of style (mixing a pirate's hat with Mom's high-heeled shoes)? With cheerfully comic illustrations, Jan Fearnley makes it perfectly clear that all kids are perfect just as they are.
