Hieronymus Betts and His Unusual Pets by M. P. Robertson


Hieronymus Betts and His Unusual Pets by M. P. Robertson

Hieronymus Betts certainly has some VERY unusual pets. All of his pets are gruesome and disgusting but Hieronymus knows of something more slimier than Slugapotamus, fiercer than the grizzly hare and greedier than the Sabre-Toothed Rhino Toad! Dare you read this book to find out? Now available in an easy-to-read dual language French/Polish edition, this book is perfect for learning either Polish or English as a foreign language.
