Max really wants a pet. His parents aren’t so sure. Puppies chew, parrots screech and sharks have too many teeth.

How about a dragon? Max’s parents say that dragons don’t exist, so Max settles for a pet worm instead. Except this particular worm turns out to be very unusual when its back begins to turn spiky and it starts to breathe smoke … Dragons don’t exist…Do they?

A funny and light-hearted story from much-loved children’s author Debi Gliori, perfect for any child who has ever wanted a pet.

With an added cautionary tale about being careful what you wish for!
