Prudence wants a pet (cover)

Students at Whitfield State School recently read Prudence Wants a Pet—a picture book about a little girl who desperately wants a pet but her parents say ‘no’. Could a branch make a good pet? Perhaps a twig … ?

We love this fabulous artwork and writing sent in by some of the students, who are only 6 and 7 years old.
