In Noah Green: Junior Zookeeper and the Garage Sale Pet by Carolyn Leiloglou, Noah is a little girl who loves animals. She loves them so much that she wants to be a zookeeper when she grows up. But for now, all she wants is a pet, specifically a dog. However, her parents haven’t allowed her to get one. Then she finds a mysterious animal at a garage sale, and her parents agree to let her keep it...for now. What they thought was a guinea pig begins to grow into something unrecognizable. Will Noah be able to keep her newfound pet? And what exactly is it anyway?

I absolutely loved this book! My daughter and I read kids' books all the time, and they are usually pretty predictable, but this one wasn’t at all. I was pleasantly surprised, and it kept me on the edge of my seat, which is rare for a children’s book. I just wanted to know what Noah’s new pet was and what was going to happen. Not only does Noah Green: Junior Zookeeper and the Garage Sale Pet have a relatable main character, but it also gives readers a fun, exciting story to follow, a life lesson about right and wrong, and cute illustrations to help readers visualize what happens in the story. Carolyn Leiloglou is definitely a talented author and knows what she’s doing. I may not be the age of the target audience, but I loved everything about this book, and I would definitely buy this for my daughter.
