Wanted: The Perfect Pet

by Fiona Roberton, Hodder Children's Books, hardback, 10.99

What Henry wants more than anything else in the world is a dog. He already has 27 frogs, but he is determined to have a pet with personality and so advertises for one in the local paper. His ad is seen by a lonely duck who disguises himself as a pooch and turns up at Henry’s door. His cover is quickly blown when he can’t catch balls and his floppy ears fall off. Henry is disappointed until he draws up a list of duck skills and decides ‘Spot’ is the perfect pet after all. This is a loveable tale of friendship and appreciating each other's talents and differences.
