The Best Pet Of All by David LaRochelle

Found this one while browsing yesterday at the library. A little boy wants a dog and asks his mother every day for a dog. Every day his mother says, "No!" Finally when he asks his mom for a dragon. Mom tells the boy if he can find one, he can have one as a pet. The boy sets out looking for one. He finally is able to find a dragon who agrees to come home with the boy after being offered toys to play with. Soon the boy, and his mother, discover that a dragon is not easy to have as a pet. He is quite messy but the dragon will not leave. The boy points out that if they had a dog the dragon WOULD leave because dragons are scared of dogs. And as you would guess, a dog soon arrives! A fun, easy read that kids will enjoy.
