Picture books about pets
Five brilliant books about fluffy family friends
I Want A Pet by Lauren Child (Frances Lincoln, £5.99)
Lauren Child's tale of an animal loving little girl and her not-so-keen family has typically witty rhetoric and inventive, sketchy illustrations. Children who find their demands for a menagerie of pets have been met with a barrage of excuses will have no trouble relating to the sweet central character, while parents may sympathise more with her beleaguered relatives.
