Synopsis

I 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? . Lauren Child's deliciously droll riddle of a text, accompanied by her own delightful and wacky illustrations, is sure to raise chuckles with grown-ups and children alike.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
