One half of Rare Mags was reading this to our small human this morning, but the small human had wandered off and I just read it on my own. It's good. Fancied some chips afterwards though.
"Albert is so desperate to get a pet, he'll take anything - a cat, a dog, giraffe... he's not fussy, so he's super excited when Dad finally brings a pet home. There's just one problem: it's a potato. Potatoes can't do anything a proper pet does... can they?! Branford Boase Award shortlisted Josh Lacey and World Illustration Award shortlisted Momoko Abe bring warmth and humour in perfect measure to this story, perfect for any child who's desperate for a pet!"
