Trouble with Bett's Pets by Easton
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When animals start disappearing from his parents' pet store, Aaron finds an unexpected ally to help solve the mystery in this upbeat, kid-friendly novel for middle-grade readers. Aaron Betts has an unusual way of looking at things. After spending almost every afternoon and weekend at his parents' pet shop, he can't help but think of people as animals. His flit-about mom is a canary, his father a basset hound, his fifth-grade teacher a gecko, and his stuck-up classmate, Sharon Trout - who is tutoring him in math - a Siamese cat. But Aaron has other things on his mind, too: his neighborhood is not what it used to be, ever since bulldozers leveled the community garden across the street and left an eccentric old lady named Bertha out in the cold. To make matters worse, the family business is losing business - and animals, one by one, are vanishing into thin air. As suspenseful as it is funny, Kelly Easton's lighthearted tale makes a comical case for overcoming first impressions, while her quirky, observant narrator will feel like a friend long after the book is closed.

Author Biography

Kelly Easton is the author of several young adult and middle-grade novels and already has a sequel to TROUBLE AT BETTS PETS in the works. She says of TROUBLE AT BETTS PETS, "Writing a book is like reading a book for me; I don't know what's going to happen until the moment it occurs on the page. I really liked Aaron when he showed up, and I just followed his voice." Kelly Easton lives on an island off the coast of Rhode Island with her husband, two children, and their collie and basset hound. This is her first book with Candlewick Press.
