What Pet to Get?
by Emma Dodd
What pet should Jack get? As he suggests everything from an elephant to a dinosaur, his mother is the voice of reason, reminding him, for example, of how impractical it might be to have a lion in the house – especially for the poor postman. The book got my daughters thinking, too, and I’m confident that they now agree with Jack’s mum that sharks may not fit in smoothly with family life. As soon as I’d finished this book, my daughters wanted me to start reading it again. If that’s not an endorsement, then I don’t know what is.
