A fabulous and fun book with a splendid use of word play and a strong sense of humour, this book will be a keeper, especially as it’s personalisable with the name of a child as well as their younger sibling, cousin or friend.

What on earth could be slimier than a slugapotamus, noisier than a greater-spotted howler-bird or scarier than a porcupython? Do you dare purchase this book to find out more?!

The story tells of some very unusual pets that the child has, some that are slimy, some that are noisy and some that are scary. But there’s one creature that is slimier, noisier and scarier than all of them put together - what on earth could it be?

This colourful picture book introduces the child's unusual pets such as Stinker the bog hog and Slurp the slugapotamus one at a time, but the story reveals that, while noisier and scarier than them all, the younger sibling or friend is actually far more fun than any pet could ever be!

Suitable for girls and boys, this book can be personalised to suit different genders and relationships. It includes two children’s names.

Unusual Pets is beautifully illustrated in ink and watercolour. It’s great for reading aloud together and is sure to be a very popular gift with children.
