Jackson has always wanted a pet. A pet that's big and wild and exciting. Imagine, then, his disappointment when Dad brings home...a hamster. Jackson names his new pet 'Monster' in an attempt to turn his little bundle of fluff into the outrageous animal he really wants. He's frustrated that Monster won't fetch sticks or climb trees. In fact Jackson soon loses interest altogether in caring for his hamster until a surreal sequence of events shows him the error of his ways! Angela McAllister's funny cautionary tale is perfectly matched by Charlotte Middleton's witty illustrations. Together they deliver - with supreme lightness of touch - an important message about the responsibilities and rewards of owning a pet.
