Lonely Mr. Skinner has two pets – Hot Dog, a long dog and Slinky, a thin snake. But Mr. Skinner needs a person to share his skinny house.  He invites a plant grower, an actor who plays Pinocchio, and a rock group but nobody works out.  He’s about to give up when a happy surprise occurs. Illustrated by Mort Gerberg. Ages 5-9

“Everything fits in McGovern’s disarming and original comedy. Inspired touches in the telling and zippy illustrations throughout the book make it endearing as well as very funny” Publishers Weekly
