Mabel is so excited! She gets to choose the family pet from Pete's Pets. Naturally she chooses an elephant. Which is all good until he sits on Mabel's mum. So, instead, she chooses something smaller- ants! Which is all good until they make their way into dad's underpants. She's back to zero. She chooses a skunk, a snake, a spider, worms...will she ever find the perfect family-friendly pet? Clever rhythms and rhymes which run along smoothly when new pets are introduced and then splutter as each new creature causes chaos. Mixed race, white/South Asian extended family. 'Bags of fun and lashings of charm. A joy to read aloud- again and again' (Mark Jennett, Equalities Trainer/Consultant, LL reviewer). Age 4-7, Paperback 31pp
