The sign in the pet shop window says "Everything must go". "Everything" refers to an incredible assortment of animals from tiny terrapin at two pence each to a great big dragon for 25 pence. There's also a one-whiskered rat, a bargain for only a penny, who is determined to be bought and pops up on all the pages. This is a wonderful, humorous tale from the pen of Mick Inkpen, author and illustrator of the delightful Kipper stories. It is also a counting book full of lift-the-flap surprises, with a very satisfying ending, which is perfect for reading aloud and sharing with young children.
