Mrs Vole the vet has one son, two daughters, three cats, four dogs and no husband. Really, she has everything she needs and she works very hard - no job is too big, too small or too high - but her children think that what she really needs is a boyfriend! It is a hilarious Happy Families picture book from master storyteller, Allan Ahlberg.
