“My best friend Chelsea and I ♥ animals. I have a dog Curly and two guinea pigs, but we need more pets if I'm going to learn to be a vet.
Today, we had the best idea ever . . .”
There are a lot of animal mad little girls out there and this is the first book in a brilliant series for them.
Juliet’s Mum is a vet and Juliet is determined to follow in her footsteps, preferably as soon as possible.
When her parents say she can’t have any more pets, Juliet and her next door neighbour and BFF, Chelsea, come up with a cunning plan to practise their vet and animal grooming skills.
Juliet is a great character, full of life, enthusiasm and good intentions. Chelsea is her willing partner in crime and Juliet’s parents are incredibly understanding about the chaos they create!
The cover illustrations are very inviting, and the font size and spacing on the page makes this a very approachable series for newly independent readers.
The next book in the series, At the Show, has a horse on the cover so I can only imagine how that will go down.
I can easily imagine little girls collecting them all.
Who’ll love it: Animal mad girls aged 7 to 9.
