Review: The Great Pet Sale

In the Great Pet Sale, the very talented author/illustrator, Mick Inkpen, makes such gorgeous use of his illustrating talent to showcase a range of adorable animals all pet-lovers will adore.

Written in the first person, a young lad sees a sign in the petshop window, announcing all pets must go in the great pet sale. But how can he choose?

With a variety of gorgeous animals from a persistent and very cute rat to a puffin, pelican, parrot and penguin, deciding on a new pet seems almost impossible… until a fabulous mathematical solution presents itself.
To cater to smaller readers, Inkpen adds pull-outs, cutouts and lift-up flaps to this fun book, dotting it with lots of fun surprises for little fingers.

Great fun!
