This story about friendship shows that there is always room for friends, old and new.
Fiona Roberton was born in Oxford and studied art and design in London and New York. She has kept the wolf from the door for a number of years by working as a designer but she has since befriended the wolf, and has it to tea on Tuesdays. Wanted: The Perfect Pet was inspired by her love of dogs, ducks and disguises.
Roberton has created a perfect picture book: elegant to behold, with a heartening story about feelings common to children, worthwhile themes, and the capacity to sustain plenty of discussion. * School Librarian * This story of constancy and love has huge resonance. * Books For Keeps * This sequel is just as endearing. Charming illustrations. * Angels & Urchins * Full of simple, expressive illustrations. * Primary Times * The underlying message of loyalty, novelty and love is one that every child and parent will recognise. * Daily Mail * A really lovely story... the illustrations are as wonderful as ever. * Bookbag * A sweet story with a reassuring conclusion. * Peters Gazette * Praise for Wanted Perfect Pet:"simple but humorous line drawings... a hoot." * Sunday Times *
