Robbie doesn’t just want a snake, Robbie needs a snake. But Robbie’s mother is not so sure. She shows him pictures of snakes, stuffed snakes in a museum, and even live snakes at a pet store, but looking is not enough for Robbie. He wants the real thing, and he wants it now. And when Mommy says no—that snakes are too dangerous and scary—Robbie finds a way to have three snakes of his very own, and keep Mommy happy, too!
