Rex Dexter is dying to have a chocolate lab for a pet -- but when his wish for the dog goes very, very wrong, he's cursed with only dead pets. Yes, dead. In The Incredibly Dead Pets of Rex Dexter by Aaron Reynolds (also the author of Creepy Carrots!), dead animals keep showing up in Rex's life -- and he's the only one who can see and hear them.
What do they want with him? It's a mystery that Rex needs to solve quickly before more animals meet an untimely end.
