Mrs Besome is organising a Grand Pet Parade and all the kids are going to bring their pets. Even Dulcie - which is strange, because Dulcie doesn't have a pet. But somehow, Dulcie finds herself putting her hand up in class and telling everyone that she will be bringing Muriel. Now, all Ducie needs to do is to find a Muriel before the big show. As luck has it, Dulcie and Dud do find a Muriel. ALl they have to do is find a place to put her (if she really is a her) until the big show. Can they keep the really secret secret, and will Muriel win the pet show?
