WANTED: THE PERFECT PET


My first Spot and Henry book, about a duck who disguises himself as a dog so he can be Henry's pet. You can follow their adventures here:

Once upon a time, there lived a boy called Henry. What Henry wanted more than anything in the whole wide world . . . MORE than chips . . . MORE than a cowboy costume . . . MORE than an all expenses paid trip to the moon . . . was a DOG.

Will Henry get exactly what he wanted?

A lovable tale of adventure and friendship . . . and the lengths some will go to find it.
