Juliet wants to be a vet when she grows up, but when she decides she needs to start practising, her wonderful misadventures begin. With gorgeous illustrations by local illustrator Kyla May.

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

We're off on a school camp to the rainforest. Chelsea, Maisy and I are excited about all the different animals we might spot on our nature walks and torchlight treks. Chelsea is NOT excited about the creepy crawlies we might find! I've brought my vet-kit along just in case we find any animals in need of help . . .
