Title: Pet Shop Follies
Author and Illustrator: Mary Ann Fraser
Publisher: Boyds Mills Press
Concepts: buyers, sellers, demand
Review: No customers have entered the pet store, and the animals are worried. They decide to put on a show to drum up some interest among the passers-by. Will their antics be enough to draw some people into the store? Bright, cheerful illustrations help to catch the attention of young children, and the simple story can initiate an interesting conversation about what some businesses do to increase demand for their products.
