Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Charlie and Lola’s award-winning author creates some wonderful scenes in her witty story about a child who wants a pet. Mum, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa all have very strong views about pets. Together, and for different reasons, they dismiss the idea of a lion, a sheep, a wolf, a boa constrictor, an octopus and a bat. What can the pet shop come up with? No one can object to an egg. After all, it could be quite a harmless pet!

SynopsisI Want a Pet by Lauren Child
I quite fancy a pet - an African lion or an octopus or even a boa constrictor. The trouble is, Mum and Dad and Granny and Grandad all have objections to pets. Grandad says that sheep are forever following you around; Dad says wolves give him a headache; and Mum says she'll cancel tea-time if I mention bats in the wardrobe again. So I must try to find a pet that none of them will mind. What could I have? .
ReviewsSet against backdrops of various bold colors, Child's deceptively simple art features a winsome character, defined by a strong black line and exhibiting droll expressions. A playful approach to a universal yearning of children. -- Publishers Weekly
