- DescriptionWhen Ava and her sister Arlie see the Write a Poem / Win a Pet sign in Mr. Noah's pet shop window, Ava is sure the prize is going to be a dog and convinces Arlie to enter the contest with her. The girls write the best poem they can, and while waiting and hoping to win, they decide that Lucille would be the perfect name for a dog. But when Mr. Noah finally anunces that they have won, Ava is so disappointed when she sees the prize, a parakeet, that she says, You're t the real Lucille! Ava must discover for herself that with a little patience, a little imagination, and a lot of love, her new pet will be every bit as much fun as a dog and a fine friend besides.
