Jules has a plan, a wild plan. He wants a pet, but first, he has to convince his reluctant mom. He asks for a lion! Then he tries for a hippo. He even says he wants a goat. Mark Janssen’s noisy, boisterous illustrations bring this romping story to life as animals from Jules’ imagination swing and stomp onto the pages.

Children will love the fun premise of the book. And it won’t be long before parents are asked, “May I please have a pet lion?”


Join Jules on an imaginative quest for a pet in this hilarious picture book filled with vibrant illustrations and a wild menagerie of animals.
