It's time for Polly to open her pet shop. The first customer of the day is Max the Magician, but which pet will he choose? The friendly-looking croc, the cheeky chimp, the smiley fishie, or the white rabbit? Next comes Cowgirl Kate. Is she after a porky piglet, a slithering snake, a handsome white horse, or a wise brown owl? After Kate, Pirate Pete stomps in. Polly offers him a great big green octopus, a teeny little mouse, a rainbow -feathered parrot and a cat - what do you think he will do? The last customer of the day is Princess Pam. Will she choose a cuddly brown bear, a beautiful white bird, or a slimy frog? See whether you can guess and then lift the flaps to find out whether you're right!
Enter Polly's Pet Shop and meet a colourful array of customers and pets - from Pirate Pete to Cowgirl Kate!
