Book Description

"I quite fancy a pet - an African lion or an octopus or even a boa constrictor. The trouble is, Mum and Dad and Granny and Grandad all have objections to pets. Grandad says that sheep are forever following you around; Dad says wolves give him a headache; and Mum says she'll cancel tea-time if I mention bats in the wardrobe again. So I must try to find a pet that none of them will mind. What could I have?". Lauren Child's deliciously droll riddle of a text, accompanied by her own delightful and wacky illustrations, is sure to raise chuckles with grown-ups and children alike.

"A great mystery finish to stimulate the imagination." The Sunday Times" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
