Critter Sitter

Richards, Chuck. 2008. Critter Sitter. Walker.

Will this "critter sitter" rethink his career path after a disastrous pet sitting job? Read and see for yourself in Critter Sitter by Chuck Richards. In this job, anything that can go wrong, does go wrong. Can he pull it all together before the owners return to discover the chaos? Perhaps a little chaos is just what is needed as this critter sitter heads into the job a bit too cocky for his own good. But did he really deserve everything that went wrong?

"Your Critter Sitter reporting for duty!" announced Henry to Mr. and Mrs. Mahoney, his very first customers. They were picking their kids up from Camp Yippie-Yahoo.
"Now, Henry," warned Mr. Mahoney, "our snake is an escape artist, so keep that dumbbell on top of his tank."
"Don't worry about a thing," assured Henry. "Critter Sitter is my name and Creature Control is my game."
