My dad says I can choose a pet,
but I’m not sure which pet to get.
A dog, a cat, a fish, a rat?
How can Piper pick the perfect pet when there are so many appealing possibilities?
‘Caroline Tuohey and Nicky Johnston’s book will appeal to all animal lovers, especially families that have pets or might be in the market for one. Johnston’s illustrations are simple and non-fussy, depicting an array of adorable animals being considered for adoption. Piper Picks the Perfect Pet is easy reading for beginners and will kick off discussion about which pet is the most appropriate one for a child’s household.’
