Little Maisie loves animals and has picked up lots of information about them from the packets of her favourite Animal Crackers. Mum is adamant they can’t have a pet in their flat, but it seems Maisie’s dreams come true when the Animal Crackers animals come alive.

Soon there’s a monkey, a penguin, a giraffe and a (baby) elephant in the kitchen, together with some chickens... Maisie quickly realises mum has a point about the space, the cleaning up and the feeding involved in looking after pets and has to ask them to back to their packets and tins.

Fortunately, Mum has a surprise up her sleeve (NB it doesn’t involve a real-life pet). This is a gorgeous story, bursting with excitement, though it concludes with Maisie tucked up snug in bed, and will be really useful to parents in homes that just can’t accommodate pets. Ruby Wright’s bright screen print illustrations are very appealing and perfectly suited to her lively picture book adventure.
