"Henry is thrilled when his cousin Annie, who used to live far away, moves in next door. They do everything together, including riding bikes, playing Frisbee, and petting and playing with Henry's dog, Mudge. When Annie longs for a pet of her own, Henry, who remembers how much fun it was to get a new pet, tries to help Annie find the perfect one- a pet that is soft, dry, and doesn't fly. After many unsuitable, but helpful suggestions from Henry and his parents, Henry's mother comes up with a great idea- a bunny! Cynthia Rylant's charming beginning reader features Sucie Stevenson's bright watercolor, illustrations. Suzanne Toren's lively narration, upbeat background music, and some sound effects enhance this enjoyable tale. Page-turn signals are optional."
