The Pets You Get!

Publisher: Andersen Press Ltd

A boy disagrees with his sister that a guinea pig would make a good pet - he would much prefer something more exciting and fun. How about a gorilla, a panther, a sabre-toothed cat or ‘a tentacled beast from the sea’? There are so many interesting creatures to choose from! But when a game of hide and seek begins, he soon discovers that guinea pigs are quite entertaining pets after all...

This funny story bounces along nicely, with rhythmic text and lively pictures that will have young children giggling along. A lovely book for sharing and reading aloud.
