Megan Thompson is back with the next book in the Megan’s World Series, Megan’s Pet Sitting Adventure! Coming November 4th, 2017!! Bringing up four kittens is expensive, and if Megan can’t come up with an idea fast, her parents will give her precious babies away. She thought pet sitting would be a fun, easy job. Getting to be around more animals - what could go wrong? Megan gets her first job watching Mrs. Driscoll’s pets for the weekend. She is responsible for the enthusiastic lab named Max, a talkative African parrot named Taffy, and a finicky Burmese cat named Holly. Each pet comes with its own quirky personality, but Megan plans to look after them like her own. She enlists the help of her best friend Jill, but Jill’s mind isn’t focused on the pets. Is Megan in over her head? Her neighbor’s pets are certainly testing Megan’s pet care knowledge. She is thrown one curveball after another as she works to keep the three pets safe and happy. How will Megan fare? Will she earn the Driscoll’s praise or get scolded for giving poor pet care? Find out in this exciting story of Megan’s Pet Sitting Adventure!


Kittens leads to many more pets in this enjoyable tale.

Megan was able to convince her parents to allow her to keep the kittens, but now, she needs to find a way to pay for their care. After deliberation, she launches a pet sitting service to raise the funds. But dealing with animals isn't always as easy as it seems.

This is the second book in the series, and although I do recommend reading the first one, it isn't impossible to join in on Megan's adventures with this book.

Megan is a pet lover pure. She adores her kittens and has a wonderful respect for animals. She always tries to give them the best of care and is very patient and understanding. Her interest in animals is very focused, leaving little room for other themes. This becomes especially clear in her relation with her best friend, Jill, and causes some tensions, which aren't completely ironed out by the end. Megan faces various problems with her pets and must find her own solutions, which lead to some interesting and fun results.

While concentrating on Megan's adventures with the pets, this book also weaves tips and facts into the scenes. The animal's behavior and reactions are very realistic, something which is sure to thrill young, animal fans.

Summed up, it's a nice continuation to the series. Especially girls who adore animals are sure to enjoy this simple and, at about one hundred words, short tale.

And here she is. . .

Pamela Foland grew up in Plano, Texas. Her love of animals started at a very young age.  As a child, she was constantly bringing home stray dogs, and injured birds.  She graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a minor in Business in 2005.  As an adult, her love of animals has only grown stronger.  Pamela has worked in numerous pet hotels as a dog trainer and is certified to teach pet first aid and CPR.  All her experience with pets culminated four years ago when Pamela found and raised an abandoned litter of day-old kittens.  Not able to part with any of these now-grown babies, Pamela enjoys going home to her "little munchkins" every night.  This experience gave Pamela the inspiration for her series debut, Megan's Munchkins.  Pamela will always have a special affinity with Megan because of their shared experiences.  She truly believes there are few experiences in life more compelling than saving the life of another being.
