Illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw

Hooray! Mabel and her family are getting a pet! There's no time to lose! But which kind of animal should they choose? Not the snake – it's too scary. The elephant's too big. The worms are too wriggly and the hyena too giggly. Then Mabel has the perfect idea. But will her family agree?


A laugh-out-loud rhyming story about finding the perfect pet – with plenty of hilarious twists along the way. 

"a rollicking quest for the ideal animal companion with a feast of visual and verbal jokes and a delightful mixed family – sari-clad Grandma batting away rogue worms is a highlight" - The Guardian
