Blurb from the back of the book:
"Most children long to have a pet, a soft and trusting little creature to play
with and to cuddle, to feed and to protect. Unfortunately, not every child is able
to have a live pet. The toy animals which we give our children as presents, can
become very important in instilling a love of and an interest in the animal world,
in fact, they can be instrumental in fostering in the child the desire to nuture
and look after its charge. They are also important in developing creative playing."
