Collins Big Cat is a guided reading series for ages 4--7 edited by Cliff Moon. Top children's authors and illustrators have created fiction and non-fiction books that your children will love to read, banded to help you choose the right book for every child. Practical teaching notes are included at the back of each book. 'I want a pet! I want a pet! I hope I like the pet I get!' But when a boy goes to the Strange Pet Shop to find a pet, there's no knowing what he'll find there. This rollicking rhyming story by Kaye Umansky is is accompanied by wonderfully wacky illustrations of the most bizarre pets you could ever hope to meet! At the end of the story is a poster advertising the Strange Pet Shop, which is ideal of further discussion and recapping of the book in children's own words, and can also be used to support further work outside the reading session.
