Following a tried, tested and successful formula, this is the next episode in a popular and very funny series. When 13-year-old Kate's family adopt the pet of an emigrating neighbour they haven't a clue what they've let themselves in for... As well as the resulting slapstick humour (particularly on the part of disaster-prone Mum) there is plenty of teen angst. The plot gives an opportunity for readers to look at issues such as selfishness, love (in many guises) and responsibility in a light-hearted yet thought-provoking way.
