Summary

Summary

When Hank leaves his bike in the driveway to be run over by his dad, he needs to help pay for a new one. But Hank is a kid. What can he do? Pet-sitting sounds easy! But Hank's first customer is huge, homesick Otis. When Janie, Hank's pesky next door neighbor, tries to help, things spin even more out of control. What if Otis isn't just homesick? And what if Hank and Janie can't get him to the vet in time? Aligned to Common Core standards and correlated to state standards. Calico Kid is an imprint of Magic Wagon, a division of ABDO.

Booklist Review

In this easy reader, Hank's bike is damaged, and he has to pay for a new one, so he decides to pet sit. He misspells his name on the sign he paints, advertising his services, by writing an o instead of an a Honk so drivers honk instead of stopping. Then his friend Ben asks Hank to pet sit his huge dog, Otis. When Otis refuses to eat, Hank and his neighbor Jane discover Otis has a bad tooth. They know Otis hates the vet, so they plan to pull out the tooth themselves, until Hank's mom intervenes. This has diverse secondary characters and uses word repetition to reinforce comprehension. The plot and accompanying illustrations don't always match or make sense. Funny and sweet, but sometimes misses the mark.--Rawlins, Sharon Copyright 2017 Booklist
