A pet called Nibbles by Zanni Louise

Ill. by Gillian Flint. Tiggy and the magic paintbrush. Five Mile, 2018. ISBN 9781760680411
(Age: 5-6) Themes: Magic. Pet Day. School. Tiggy does not have a pet for pet day, but she does have a secret magic paintbrush in her sock. She creates a magic pet - a small dragon, called Nibbles. This solves her problem, but not everything goes smoothly for Nibbles - after all he is only pocket-sized. Illustrations by Gillian Flint are a mix of colour and black and white and are in an appealing cartoon-style.
This is an easy to read book suited for those who would like to transition to independent readers, rather than picture books. It is not an early chapter book - there is only one chapter, but is well-suited to those aged 5-6.
