Is your dog afraid to go to the vet? Sherman and Lucy are, but they are sorely in need of a check-up! After multiple mishaps and excuses to avoid their vet visit, they learn that the vet is not to be feared, and make a gentle and kind friend. You'll be asked to read this fun and lighthearted children's book over and over. Written in rhyming verse, it promises to be a family favorite and is sure to encourage your child's interest in reading and writing poetry themselves. You'll laugh out loud at the adorable illustrations. Longtime pet owner and published poet, Elizabeth Lynn's passion for writing poetry and her many humorous trips to the vet sparked the creation of her first children's book, "Forget The Vet." She maintains the belief that rhyming in stories escalates children's interest and progress in reading. She knows being a responsible pet owner is not always easy, and this book illustrates that a healthy sense of humor is essential in getting through lifeƠ-especially with independent thinking pets! It's not always easy to get Sherman and Lucy to comply with their owner when it comes time to go for their check-up!
