Sparky by Jenny Offil, illus. by Chris Appelhaus


Sparky is cuddly, adorable and absolutely, postively, extremely lazy. Will he be the perfect pet our narrator hopes he will be? 

I read Sparky by Jenny Offill with my Grade 2 class last week and they absolutely loved it. There were lots of giggles at Sparky's "tricks" and they couldn't get enough of Sparky's squishy sleepy face.

The students also loved the bonus book we read at the end, Jenny Offill's 11 Experiments that Failed.
