The sign in the pet shop window says "Everything must go". "Everything" refers to an incredible assortment of animals from tiny terrapin at two pence each to a great big dragon for 25 pence. There's also a one-whiskered rat, a bargain for only a penny, who is determined to be bought and pops up on all the pages.
This is a wonderful, humorous tale from the pen of Mick Inkpen, author and illustrator of the delightful Kipper stories. It is also a counting book full of lift-the-flap surprises, with a very satisfying ending, which is perfect for reading aloud and sharing with young children. (Ages 3 to 5)

With its flaps and interesting animals, this is probably suitable for children from about 18 months (in response to the other review, Billy's Beetle has the same kind of feel as this book but possibly has more text and certainly has no flaps so is better from two and a half). This book should also last the test of time. It still amuses my daughter who at 7 is really too old, and she also likes to do the maths, adding up the prices of the various animals for sale up to reach £1.
In sum, totally charming.
It includes lots of animal names, money and answer story about a rat desperate to be taken home.
My qualms are that a couple of times you're not sure which animal is which (I'm not a natural history expert and we both guess) and that when the boy spends his money, the amount of each animal is unrealistic, but hey, it's a picture book!
Love Inkpen's distinctive style of illustration, love the story and foldouts as always. My three year old is always pleased to see this at bedtime.
