The Pets You Get!


Formats & editions


A fabulously funny new picture book on a perennially popular theme from the illustrator of the bestselling Who's in the Loo?

A small boy imagines all the wild pets he could get, from an enormous bear to a fiery dragon! He decides they'd be so much better than his sister's boring little guinea pig. But maybe even the smallest of pets can be surprisingly fun, too . . .

About the Authors

Thomas Taylor

Born in Norfolk but raised in Wales, Thomas doodled his way through childhood until they let him into Norwich School of Art and Design. He then studied illustration at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge. His first commissioned work was the cover illustration for a then unknown book called Harry potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J. K. Rowling.
Since then Thomas has written and Illustrated many children's picture books, and even written a few for others to illustrate. He lives in Normandy, France, where he shamelessly steals story ideas from his two little boys, Max and Benjy.

Adrian Reynolds

Adrian Reynolds was born in South Wales, and after studying at Swansea College of Art and later at Cambridgeshire College of Art and Technology, Adrian worked at Heffers Children's Book Shop before beginning to write and illustrate his own picture books.

Adrian's very first books were published in 1997 and since then he has published more than forty titles, including the hugely popular Harry And The Bucketful Of Dinosaurs series, written by Ian Whybrow. He has won the Red House Picture Book Award and the Sheffield Children's Book Award.
