For as long as Julia can remember, she has wanted a pet. She takes the baby carriage out every day to look for one. Crows are too fast and flies are too small. A horse would be perfect, but a hedgehog or a frog would be fine, too. One day, on a fruitless search, Julia spots a small boy - and gets an unusual inspiration . . . Barbro Lindgren's charming story about an inventive child's hunt for a pet is accompanied by Eva Eriksson's warm, expressive illustrations.Lindgren, Barbro is the author of 'Julia Wants a Pet', published 2003 under ISBN 9789129659405 and ISBN 912965940X.
