Henry has the Perfect Pet - a duck called Spot - who thinks he's found the Perfect Present for Henry's Birthday. But when the big day comes, Henry's grandparents arrive with a Perfect Present of their own - a puppy! It is something that could change things between Spot and Henry forever...Reminiscent of Oliver Jeffers, with the same universally appealing style. The book's topic will appeal to all young children who love pets. The Perfect Present was reviewed in The Daily Mail in a feature called 'Brilliant reads to banish boredom': "Roberton manages to convey a touching range of emotion in the expressions..."
