Hi! I'm Juliet. I'm ten years old. And I'm nearly a vet! There's a cat show in town and some of the cats are going to board at Mum's vet clinic. Chelsea and I can't wait to see all the different types of cats. The owners have special techniques for preparing their pets for the show - and some are very fussy. When there's a cat-astrophe, it's lucky that my best friend is almost a world-famous animal trainer and groomer!
Rebecca Johnson is an Australian author, teacher and mother of two. Juliet, Nearly a Vet is her first fiction series with Penguin. She has also written a best-selling non-fiction series of adventures featuring Australian wildlife, which has sold more than 2.6 million copies. From the author: When I was growing up, I was mad about animals. Not just the normal kind like cats, dogs and horses, but anything that moved. The best part of all was that I actually lived next door to a vet! We are still great friends and he's 95 now. One of my fondest memories of growing up is going out in a canoe with my sister and brother after a f lood and -rescuing animals that were stranded on sticks and twigs and ferrying them to safety. Not every girl I know would be happiest in a canoe full of mice, bugs and the odd green snake, but I'm sure Juliet would!
