Product Description

This is a humorous book which starts from the premise that there are many benefits to owning a pet, but acknowledges that not everyone is content with conventional animals such as cats and dogs. In fact, the very adventurous pet owner might prefer a pet that is so exotic that it technically doesn’t exist. This book suggests, therefore, that the reader may want to opt for a crypto-zoological or mythological creature. The main problem with owning such an animal is knowing how to look after it. A brief glance through the local paper will reveal a startling lack of adverts offering baby bigfoots free to a good home, and there is little in the way of obedience classes for werewolves. What, you may ask, does one feed a baby Mongolian Death Worm? Is the giant squid a good choice of pet if you live in a penthouse flat? This book gives a description of each animal, together with an assessment of its suitability for domestication, along with hints and tips on how to obtain and care for your chosen animal. Arranged in terms of dangerousness of animal, it is designed to be dipped into, so that the reader may quickly locate useful information such as how to remove the budgie from the jaws of a newly introduced pet sea monster, should the need arise. Armed with the information in this book, you’ll be ready to embark on the rewarding endeavour of owning your very own phoenix, dragon or bogeyman. Word count: 25,000
