Synopsis

Jacob O'Reilly Wants a Pet by Lynne Rickards

Like many young children, Jacob O'Reilly wants a pet. He'd love a dog. A cat would be great. Ooh, what about gerbils? Or an iguana? He's desperate for an animal to look after, but mum and dad don't fancy the idea. Then they suggest that he start a pet-sitting business, and all hell breaks loose...'The jokes work time and time again, and it'll be a firm favourite on any bookshelf.' - The Bookbag

Reviews

The jokes work time and time again, and it'll be a firm favourite on any bookshelf. The Bookbag Rickard's funny and just-right rhythmic text is brilliantly illustrated by Lee Wildish. Bookseller Youngsters will be eager to join in after a few readings. School Librarian

About the Author

Lynne Rickards

Lynne Rickards was born in Ottawa, Canada but now lives in Glasgow's West End with her family. She first started as an illustrator in her twenties but then decided to go back to University to study French. It wasn't until her forties that she discovered how much she liked writing.

Lynne's children are her main inspiration alongside her editor and agent. Her son is the model for Jack in 'Jack's Bed' because he hates going to bed but loves jumping on it! Lynne is particularly fond also of Jack's spotty leopard with gleaming eyes.

She describes herself as warm, open and fun!

To relax Lynne enjoys reading, making plasticine creatures with her daughter and snuggling with her son to watch Pingu.
