The Pet Potato by Josh Lacey
Andersen Press (June 2022)
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!
