This volume in the Kids of Canada series follows a young city girl's exploration of the countryside, showing what she finds there.
Anna searches for a pet on her grandparent's farm: will it be a toad? A Worm? A Snake? Each choice she makes teaches her about these creatures and the world they inhabit and, ultimately, about herself.
In a charming and playful manner, Atwood and Barkhouse evoke the relationship between a child and the natural world.
