In this deliciously funny picture book from Children's Laureate Lauren Child a child really wants a pet - but Mum, Dad, Granny and Grandad aren't keen on any of her ideas! Sheep are forever following you around, an octopus would leave eight dirty footprints wherever it went and boa constrictors have a habit of wrapping themselves around you and squeezing too tightly... Can she find a pet that will please everyone? Perfect for any child who has ever wanted a pet, and any parent who has ever objected!
