Nobody thinks about the poor parents when the words “I want’’ roll off young tongues.
If its not a computer, a toy or a sweet, its got to be a pet! At least this book has you laughing as you follow the adventures of two children desperate to persuade their parents to buy them a pet. After the children decide bugs and beetles might be a better option than a dog, the grown-ups start to change their minds!
