Juliet, Nearly a Vet series. Puffin Books, 2013. ISBN 978-0-14-330704-4.
(Age: 8-10) Recommended. Juliet is a 10 year old girl who knows her mind. She wants to be a vet just like her Mum. So eager is she to study veterinary skills, she keeps a Vet Diary.
You can often read her diary notes throughout the book. They are informative, reporting facts about different animals such as their care and behavior.
With the help of her best friend Chelsea, Juliet decides it would be a good idea to have a 'Pet Sleepover', offering a free health check and grooming session as well. Of course this has to be a secret from their parents. What could go wrong?
This is an easy to read smaller novel with less than 90 pages and is interspersed with small drawings and diary entries.
The story is both humorous and educational and will appeal to 8 to 10 year olds.
The next is this series is entitled At the Show.
