The Snake who Came to Stay

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Polly’s holiday home for pets is much in demand. There are Bill and Ben the guinea pigs, a noisy mynah bird called Charlie, and now Doris the snake, belonging to Polly’s friend Jack. When Doris goes missing, Polly’s mum goes mad. Can they find Doris before Jack gets back and more importantly before Mum finds the guinea pigs?

This amusing story by former Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson is easy to read and has pictures on every page. There are also a few snake jokes and a snakes and ladders game inside the front cover. An appealing dyslexia-friendly story for young animal lovers.
