A Strange Pet for an Odd Girl
By Kathleen W. Redman
1 Athena is an odd girl. She loves wearing strange clothes - sometimes she even wears a different colored sock on each foot! She has very strange taste in music, too. She likes to read weird books while she listens to her strange music.
2 One day, Athena decided she wanted a pet. Her friend had gotten a puppy for her birthday. Athena thought the puppy was so cute. She thought she would do well with a pet. She asked her mom if she could have a pet. Her mom said she could if she would take good care of her pet.
3 Athena looked up pets on the Internet. She looked at dogs, cats, birds, turtles, and even snakes! She decided that she'd like to get a turtle. They seemed pretty easy to care for. Besides, turtles are kind of odd pets. They really aren't very cuddly, Athena thought.
