I really want a pet: an African lion… or an octopus… or even a boa constrictor!
The trouble is, Mum and Dad and Granny and Grandad aren’t keen on any of my ideas. After all, lions have a habit of snacking between meals and boa constrictors are a little too friendly.
So I’ll have to find a pet that none of them will wind… but what else could I have?
Find out the answer in this new pocket-sized hardback edition of Lauren Child’s first picture book, celebrating 15 years in print. The deliciously droll riddle of a story captures the essence of Lauren Child at her best – her ability to understand children, their likes and dislikes and communicate without patronising – and her distinctive and quirky illustrations are sure to delight grown-ups and children alike.
Lauren Child is one of the top children’s author-illustrators in the Uk. Her Charlie and Lola series of picture books have been made into an award winning BBC television series and she has won the Kate Greenaway Medal. Her other title for Frances Lincoln is Dan’s Angel.
Lauren was inspired to write I Want a Pet after watching her friend look longingly in a pet window. Lauren herself once had sixteen guinea pigs, two goldfish, two hamsters one tortoise and hundreds of stick insects.
