Synopsis

Wanted: The Perfect Pet by Fiona Roberton

Not everyone has to go to the pet shop to find their perfect pet...Once upon a time, there lived a boy called Henry. What Henry wanted more than anything in the whole wide world...MORE than chips...MORE than a cowboy costume...MORE than an all-expenses-paid trip to the moon...was a DOG. A lovable tale of adventure and friendship...and the lengths some will go to find it. A great book to springboard early childhood lessons and imaginative play on pets.

She has kept the wolf from the door for a number of years by working as a designer, but has since befriended the wolf, and has it to tea on Tuesdays. Sometimes they go out. Her previous book, Wanted: The Perfect Pet, was inspired by her love of dogs, ducks and disguises.
