KIRKUS REVIEW

What pet to choose and how to care for it? Boys and girls will find almost every conceivable question answered on dogs, cats, goldfish, rabbits, as well as some unusual pets like alligators, squirrels and guinea pigs. There are some unique angles, -such as how to keep a dog and cat happy in the same household; effects of the season on raccoon diet; why a dog pants; foods -- the types and quantities for each animal under discussion. Common sicknesses. Where different kinds of pets may be obtained. Training. Mr. Morgan, known for his sound scientific approach in previous books, has gone into his subject with the thoroughness necessary for a young zoo keeper. Sound information and no fuss and feathers.
