You’re in Good Paws

by Maureen Fergus, illustrated by Kathryn Durst

Leo is a little nervous about getting his tonsils out – even more so when he realises he is in an animal hospital!
But the hospital staff take great care of Leo. He gets to eat ice-cream, watch TV, explore the hospital – and he even makes a friend! Maybe going to hospital isn’t so scary after all.
