I Want a Pet Paperback
by Lauren Child
Lauren Child is the Children's Laureate from 2017 to 2019.
In this deliciously droll riddle of a text, 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?
