Ginny Goblin may be a monster, but she CANNOT have a monster for a pet in this action-packed, laugh-out-loud adventure perfect for fans of Jon Klassen, Peter Brown, and Vera Brogsol.

Perhaps a pet will teach clever Ginny Goblin some responsibility. Fish make good pets. So do hermit crabs. Ginny does NOT need a giant net or bear trap or army tank to catch a pet. But will Ginny Goblin get her way? Besides, isn’t a monster a perfect pet for a goblin?

In this funny follow-up toGinny Goblin Is Not Allowed to Open This Box, one thing is for certain: Ginny Goblin always has a plan.

David Goodner has an adoring wife and two tolerating cats. He works in a library in North Texas where he gets to see all the new books before anybody else.

Louis Thomasgraduated from Gobelins/Paris and Calarts/Los Angeles. He is the author/illustrator of the bookHug It Out.

â?? "The art perfectly complements the imaginative, absurd text....Ginny is becoming a symbol of toddler power."—Kirkus, STARRED review

"Thomas’s colorful illustrations are packed with personality. Ginny stands out on every page....this title is sure to please children whether or not they want a pet of their own. Readers will find Ginny’s adventures and the tone of the text a hoot."—School Library Journal

"Elaborate monster-seeking scenarios, the title phrase as a refrain, and lively illustrations in ink and gouache make Ginny’s second humorous outing...perfect for reading aloud."—The Horn Book
