While visiting her grandparents' farm, city girl Anna decides she wants a pet. A cow? A snake? Anna realizes that these creatures won't be happy in the city, and she doesn't want a pet unless it's happy. Grandma and Grandpa have just the right thing for Anna.
Short chapters and easy-to-read text make this story perfect for beginning readers.

Originally published in 1979 and 1980 as part of the "Kids of Canada" series, Six Darn Cows and Anna's Pet have both been long out of print. Now these two Canadian classics have been repackaged for a new generation of beginning readers....these two titles are perfect for children almost ready for chapter books. They also have nostalgic appeal for many parents as well.
Highly Recommended.
