1st ed.

After asking for a big, wild, and exciting pet, Jackson receives a boring hamster and quickly forgets to care for it, with frightening results. Jackson has always wanted a pet. Something big and wild and exciting! Imagine his disappointment, then, when his dad brings home ... a hamster. Not giving up hope, Jackson names his little bundle of fluff Monster, and tries to teach him to be the outrageous pet he really wants. But when Monster won't fetch sticks or climb trees, Jackson loses interest in caring for him altogether. It takes a surreal taste of role reversal to show Jackson the error of his ways and the responsibilities of owning a pet. Complemented by Charlotte Middleton's edgy illustrations, Angela McAllister's monstrously funny story will have kids roaring with laughter!
