Wendy Quill is back for a third suitably entertaining adventure. This time Wendy’s predicament will be familiar to many: she is desperate to have a new pet. For Wendy it is especially important as she wants to be a vet. Will Wendy be able to persuade her mother? And, will she ever be able to grow her own pet? Mina May’s hilarious illustrations capture the story perfectly.

Synopsis

Wendy Quill Tries to Grow a Pet by Wendy Meddour

When I grow up I want to be a vet but mum doesn't like things that poo in the house which means I'll never be allowed another pet. Not even one. Tiny. Small. Pet. It is true that I have Bathilda Brown, my beautiful, invisible, dribbly dog. But if I'm ever going to be a PROPER, PROFESSIONAL VET, I'm going to need lots of animals that I can actually see. My name is Wendy Quill and this is the story of how I tried to grow a pet!

More adventures with Wendy Quill, perfect for those children making the move from picture book style to full novel. Lively and funny, there are hilarious illustrations throughout, all done by the author's 12 year old daughter.
