Rainn Wilson's lively narration conveys excitement and suspense as two children discuss which pet to buy. Wilson's range of tones, drawn-out sounds, and energetic bursts of words set the stage for a brother and sister's short but exuberant discussion of the animals in a pet store. While their voices are not always well differentiated, Wilson brings out the rhyming pattern in a naturally flowing way that lends to a sense of wonder about the animals and the children's choice of pet. The producer notes, read by Julia Whelan, are equally well delivered. With a perfect blend of reverence and sparkle, she recounts how this book came to be posthumously published 24 years after Seuss's death, along with important issues pertaining to pets.
