LoveReading View on I Want a Pet

This beautiful new mini hardback of Lauren Child’s first picture book, is celebrating 15 years in print. The deliciously droll riddle of a story captures the essence of Lauren Child at her best – her ability to understand children, their likes and dislikes, and communicate without patronising – and her distinctive and quirky illustrations are sure to delight grown-ups and children alike.  Perfect for reading aloud or an early reader for a child to enjoy by themselves.

I Want a Pet Synopsis

I really want a pet: an African lion…or an octopus… or even a boa constrictor!

The trouble is, Mum and Dad and Granny and Grandad aren’t keen on any of my ideas. After all, lions have a habit of snacking between meals, and boa constrictors are a little too friendly.

So I’ll have to find a pet that none of them will mind…but what else could I have?
