We Want a Pet!
  • We Want a Pet!

  • "We want a pet! We want a pet!" chant the kids.
    "No! We will not let you have a pet. We are dead set against a pet!" say the parents.
    And so the battle lines are drawn -- can the kids convince the parents?

    As they lie in the grass watching bugs and beetles, watching little legs and eyes,
    watching ladybirds, spiders and flies, suddenly they realise these will be their pets!!

    Complete mayhem follows as the kids bring their gross, slimy, leggy, hairy 'pets' inside . . .

Richard Hamilton has written picture book texts for Bloomsbury and Orchard and writes young fiction for Bloomsbury in collaboration with the illustrator Sam Hearn; the most recently published of these being JACK BOLT AND THE HIGHWAYMEN'S HIDEOUT. He has lots of ideas for picture books and fiction. His day job is at the BBC abridging books for radio.
