Elizabeth really, really, really wants a pet. But her parents do NOT. Instead they give her a cactus. Even though Elizabeth's new plant proves to be a good listener, Elizabeth still really wants a pet. When Elizabeth campaigns to find the right pet, her family imagines some hair-raising possibilities, until Doug comes along who is, without a doubt, the most unusual, perfect pet of all.
