After asking for a big, wild, and exciting pet, Jackson receives a boring hamster and quickly forgets to care for it, with frightening results.

& Taylor

Having always dreamed of having a wild, crazy, monster-type pet, Jackson is disappointed when his father brings him a cute, cuddly hamster who, despite all of Jackson’s intense training, just can’t seem to manage to do one single trick!

Simon and Schuster
Jackson has always wanted a pet.Something BIG and WILD and EXCITING! So imagine his disappointment when his dad brings home...a hamster.Not giving up hope, Jackson names his little bundle of fluff Monster, and tries to teach him to be the outrageous pet he really wants. But when Monster won't fetch sticks or climb trees, Jackson loses interest in caring for him altogether, and it takes a surreal taste of role reversal to show Jackson the error of his ways.Complemented by Charlotte Middleton's edgy illustrations, Angela McAllister's monstrously funny story will have readers roaring with laughter, while it delivers an important message about the rewards and responsibilities of owning a pet.
