Not that pet!  Cover Image Book Book

Not that pet! / Smriti Prasadam-Halls ; illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw.

Prasadam-Halls, Smriti, (author.). Beardshaw, Rosalind, (illustrator.).


"Some are too scary, some are too smelly, some are too wiggly, and some are too giggly. Can Mabel find the perfect pet for her family? Not noisy or scary or covered in spikes. She'd choose something friendly that EVERYONE likes. Mabel's family is letting her pick what kind of pet to get, and she is determined to find the very BEST one. "Any pet you like delivered to your door," promises the sign. But what if the ants are too tiny, the hyenas too giggly, the owl too loud? What if the snake almost strangles Granddad and the skunk wants to spray the baby? None of the pets she tries out seems like the right fit. Readers will love following through several comical reveals until Mabel meets her furry match (not what you might guess!)." -- Provided by publisher.
