Comments about Elizabeth Nelson
I really, really want a pet.
I think it would be so much fun!
But because I'm not eight yet,
Mommy says I'm still too young.

But maybe a puppy would be better!
Cause there's not much a fish can do,
and a puppy would be my friend forever!
But a puppy wouldn't stay a puppy!
Pretty soon he'd be as big as me.
Maybe I should wish for a pet monkey
And together we could climb tall ...
