Juliet Nearly A Vet Book Series - Review & Giveaway!



The Juliet Nearly A Vet book series is written by Australian author Rebecca Johnson, and illustrated by Kyla May.
There are 12 books in the series so far, with the latest one, Rainforest Camp, released earlier this year.
I read the first book in the series, The Great Pet Plan, with my youngest daughter, and we both really enjoyed it. 
I'll be giving away a copy, so keep reading to see how you can win!

Juliet is ten years old and she wants to become a vet, just like her mum.
Along with her best friend, who happens to be her next-door neighbour, Chelsea, she devises a plan to have a 'pet sleepover', so she can practise looking after animals. But she doesn't mention this to her family!
And we find out, that even though Juliet and Chelsea have the best intentions, not everything goes to plan!

The books are targeted at an audience of 8-10 year old girls, but my 6 year-old daughter adored the story, she comprehended it well, and could read most of the words. 
She also liked looking at the black-and-white illustrations throughout the book, and reading the tips and hints that Juliet writes in her Vet Diary.
We are looking forward to reading more books from the range.

And with thanks to Rebecca, I have a copy of The Great Pet Plan to giveaway!

  1. Sounds like a lovely book. My 7 year old loves books featuring animals. He's informed that he wants to be a police man when he grows up. Following this, he wants to work at IGA then become a magician. A varied career path, but at least he knows what he wants to do, unlike his mother! LOL

  3. My 7 year old daugher wants to be a farmer and remain a "Miss" forever! My 5 year old boy wants to be an alien when he grows up (because he wants to live on the moon). My 2 year old loves making all of us laugh so, while he's too young to tell me, I think he will be an actor! When I was growing up I wanted to be the first female Prime Minister (never happened ;)).

  5. Oooh I love the sound of this book. We're always on the lookout for fun new series to capture our six year old's attention. I won't enter the comp this time round seeing I won one recently. Better give the others a chance ;)

  6. I wanted to be either a secretary or a vets assistant. Not sure why I didn't want to be either the boss or the vet, but there you have it. As luck would have it I ended up spending 13 years of my working life as the Senior Executive Assistant to the Australian Chief Veterinary Officer. So I got both! LOL.
    I also wanted to write books. Seems like I managed to nail that one too.
    If only I had wished to have been a gazillionaire ...
    I love the sound of this series. It sounds like our little 10 year old vet and our little 10 year old cheerleader could be friends!

  7. Both my girls would love this. When I was younger I wanted to be an astronomer - all because of Halley's Comet! It's actually cool that my son has a strong interest in space now as I get to revisit all the facts again too - I never did completely outgrowm my interest!

  14. Growing up I wanted to be famous! It didn't really matter what for. I just knew I wanted people to know my name. My 7yo on the other hand wants to fly... she just hasn't figured out how yet.

  16. I wanted to be an ice skater! I was enamoured with Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean, UK Olympic gold medalists and world Champions thought the 1980's. Unfortunately, I have suffered from dizziness and vertigo for most of my life, so I was never able to fully master those twists and spins!

  18. Growing up, I wanted to be "Nearly A Vet"...as I desperately wanted a cuddly pet!
    But as I grew up I started to read...and thought a librarian would be a good job indeed!
    Then I started playing the flute...and thought an orchestra would be a hoot!
    Now as a teacher and a mummy of 4...I'm so happy and couldn't ask for more!
