Playground Pets: Juliet, Nearly a Vet (Book 8)




Juliet Nearly a Vet is a popular animal series for children aged 7-10 by Rebecca Johnson, with gorgeous illustrations by local illustrator Kyla May. Perfect for children who love animals.

Hi! I'm Juliet. I'm ten years old. And I'm nearly a vet!

Chelsea and I have such a cool school – we get to have playground pets! Guineas pigs, lizards, fish and insects are all part of our classroom. This week, we have a replacement teacher. Poor Miss Fine doesn't know much about animals. Luckily we do (it's so handy nearly being a vet).

We're going to be flat-out keeping track of everything, but I'm sure nothing will go too wrong . . .
