Wanted: The Perfect Pet

Not everyone has to go to the pet shop to find their perfect pet…

Once upon a time, there lived a boy called Henry. What Henry wanted more than anything in the whole wide world. . . MORE than chips. . . MORE than a cowboy costume. . . MORE than an all-expenses-paid trip to the moon. . . was a DOG.

A lovable tale of adventure and friendship. . . and the lengths some will go to find it.

A great book to springboard early childhood lessons and imaginative play on pets.

The Perfect Present

The dearly loved duo from Wanted: The Perfect Pet return in a heart-warming tale about never letting good friends go.

Henry has the Perfect Pet – a duck called Spot – who thinks he’s found the Perfect Present for Henry’s Birthday. But when the big day comes, Henry’s grandparents arrive with a Perfect Present of their own – a puppy! It is something that could change things between Spot and Henry forever. . .

Reminiscent of Oliver Jeffers, with the same universally appealing style. The book’s topic will appeal to all young children who love pets.

Cuckoo!

A gorgeous story about accepting differences from the creator of Wanted: The Perfect Pet and The Perfect Present. Cuckoo is a bit different from all the other chicks. They too-woo-weet but he cuckoos! So he goes in search of a new home – but the sheep, frogs and cows don’t understand him either. Will he ever find someone who is just like him?

A Tale of Two Beasts

There are two sides to every story.

A little girl finds a strange beast in the woods and takes it home as a pet. She feeds it, shows it off to her friends and gives it a hat. But that night it escapes. Then the beast tells the story of being kidnapped by the girl, who forcefed it squirrel food, scared it with a group of beasts and wrapped it in wool. Can the two beasts resolve their differences?

An eye-opening story that makes you look at things from a different perspective.

 

The course was excellent.
