Sure enough, that made the rattlesnake so happy he followed Joe home. The snake became Joe’s pet. Just like a dog. Oh, wow, Joe’s tall tales get taller every year!

2 reviews for My Pet Rattlesnake

  1. Kirkus Reviews
    The creators of The Gum Chewing Rattler (2006) concoct another outlandish episode with a twist in its tale A shaggy snake story certain to elicit hoots and hollers aplenty from young audiences.

  2. Midwest Book Review
    Comic relief and gallows humor combine effortlessly. My Pet Rattlesnake ends with a bang or a rattle, and like all tall tales, grows taller with the telling.
