Peeve, My Parents' Pet by Tom Ryan

A young boy is determined to hunt down Peeve, the
mysterious and mischievous pet his parents talk about so
often. Although his parents’ pet is apparently quite small,
Peeve certainly causes a lot of trouble. Peeve leaves
chocolate finger prints on the piano, toys all over the house,
water on the bathroom floor, mud on the carpet, and crumbs
on the couch. What kind of unusual pet is Peeve? And why
do the boy's parents let such a wild pet live in their home?
Both children and adults will relate to this humorous story,
which will likely lead to a discussion about their own pet
peeves.
“Peeve, My Parents’ Pet” is Tom’s debut picture book.  He grew up
near Wausau, Wisconsin and attended UW-Madison, where he
studied Journalism and Reverse Psychology. When he’s not
coaching youth sports, attempting to grow giant pumpkins or writing
Haiku about his train commute, Tom works in the communications
department at MillerCoors.  He lives in the Milwaukee area with his
wife, Kim, and two young sons.
