Mr Walnut owns the biggest pet shop in town but Mina feels sorry for the pets in there as the cages are so small and their faces are so sad. When her bunny goes missing she is sure Mr Walnut has her, so she sets out to find her pet and rescue her. The bunny isn’t the only one of the animals that Mina rescues though and what happens next changes everything, including mean old Mr Walnut.
A very entertaining story about fighting for your friends (or pets), and how even a very small person can bring about a big change. The illustrations are quite detailed and interesting and the story itself is fun and sweet. An enjoyable book to share.

Hey Jack Series
Jack is feeling a bit grouchy because he has no one to play with. Then something wonderful happens, he finds a lost puppy. The puppy is so cute and he really wants to keep it. He names it Scraps even though he knows he will have to give it back if they find the owner. Maybe there will be a way to convince his parents to let him keep Scraps.
A cute little story about a little boy and a little boys best friend. This series of books continues to be great for beginning readers with its large font, easy to understand and fun stories. Jack is a wonderful character and Rippin gives her character the opportunity to feel things so you can bring up certain issues with your children (such as feeling grouchy) if you are so inclined. Otherwise you can just sit back and be entertained, there is such joy in a story of a boy and a puppy.
