All Harvey wants is a pet, yet his dad says that their flat is too small. But surely it's big enough for a slimy slug, or a hairy spider, or even an ant called Teeny, right? Will Harvey ever find a pet small enough?

This exciting and humorous story from well-loved author Jenny McLachlan is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves and for Key Stage 1. It features engaging illustrations by Sarah Hoyle and characters young readers will find hard to resist.

Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson. They are packed with gorgeous colour illustrations and include inside cover notes to help adults reading with children, as well as ideas for activities related to the stories.

Review quote

A bright and breezy story, with repetition and logical plot sequence which will interest ages six and up. * The Irish Examiner * Every child needs a Bloomsbury Young Reader. Fun, stretching, just the right length, full of adventurous vocabulary and punctuation, [with] tips to support the parent or carer at home or the teacher who needs inspiration at the end of a busy day. * Julie-Ann McCulloch, Specialist EAL Teacher, Stockport Local Authority * Bethan loves the cute animals and often wants things she has to wait for so she could relate to the main character. She has now read this book four times which is something she very rarely does. She loves the idea that it is her own book and a chapter book. * Katie Potter, mother of Bethan, aged 6 *
