...to the good guys;Children's books

25th June 1999 at 01:00
No monsters and no baddies in Cally Poplak's good-natured No More Pets! (Mammoth pound;3.99). Even though Mum doesn't want Beth to keep the goldfish, she is a nice mum with laughing eyes and suddenly she arrives home with all the necessary gear - tank, plants and stones. Dad is a softie too, and in no time at all Beth has persuaded them to take in a stray cat and a friend's labrador. Published in a series designed to build readers' confidence, this happy-family story also builds confidence in human nature.
