The Lovereading4Kids comment

‘I want a pet’ will be a familiar refrain in many households. Katie McGinty has her heart set on one pet in particular – not for her a hamster, cat or dog – not even a pig. Katie wants a zebra! She has it all planned out, where it will sleep, how to give it a bath. Dad is nonplussed as you’d expect, and completely caught out by the surprise twist in the story! A lovely mix of the familiar and the absurd, this is a lots of fun, and implies that anything is possible if you really want it.

~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Katie Mcginty Wants a Pet by Jenna Harrington

Katie McGinty really wants a pet. But she doesn't want an ordinary pet; hamsters, cats, and dogs are just...YUCK! What she wants more than anything else in the world is a ...zebra! A zebra who slurps spaghetti, sleeps in her bunk bed and bathes in the local swimming pool. And she's determined to get one!

About the Author

Jenna dreamed of living in Narnia when she was little. When she grew up and realised that couldn't happen, she did the next best thing and worked in Disneyworld for a year. When she's not working for a children's book publisher or writing, she spends her time in imaginary worlds. Finn grew up with only one thought in his head: to become an astronaut. When that failed, he found drawing astronauts was just as good, and not nearly as dangerous. When he's not illustrating, he's usually drinking tea and staring out the window at nothing in particular. He lives in a beautiful northern city that smells of chocolate, sounds like church bells, and where Vikings walk the streets daily.
