The House of a Million Pets by Ann Hodgman

House of a Million PetsThis was a very fun, quirky book about a woman who LOVES animals and has had many many pets over her lifetime.  The author explains that kids were always asking her to tell them stories about her family’s pets and sometimes telling her that she should write a book about them – and so she did.  The stories are written in a very relaxed and conversational way, sort of how you might sit around and tell stories to kids.   We learn lots of things about the animals, for instance how each pet came to live with her family and about the personality of each.  This book is filled with humor and honesty about living in a house with many pets — you know them and love them with all their quirkiness (sort of like family).  What a fun read, even if you don’t own any pets!

      Hey Emily,
      I really enjoyed this book too! My daughter was given this book from her Forth Grade Teacher For Christmas even though she has already read it and so have I, I still love to go back and read some stories about some of the animals!

    At first glance, I thought ‘Shoot this is going to be a boring bio, but I ended up loving this book.’ And I’m only 12. It was an awesome read.

    The House of a million pet was a stupendous book! After the first few chapter it was a tad bit boring but then it started picking up and it turned out to be an amazing book! I read it in less than three days! I love the way Ann wrote, in a relaxed and comforted way, almost in a conversation! Very good book
