The Pets You Get!

By Adrian Reynolds, Thomas Taylor
Illustrated by Adrian Reynolds

A fabulously funny new picture book on a perennially popular theme from the illustrator of the bestselling Who's in the Loo?

A small boy imagines all the wild pets he could get, from an enormous bear to a fiery dragon! He decides they'd be so much better than his sister's boring little guinea pig. But maybe even the smallest of pets can be surprisingly fun, too . . .
