In this heart-warming, laugh-out-loud story of friendship, accident-prone Pansy tries her very hardest to be the most perfect guest to her friend Walter ...with hilarious and calamitous results! From children's author and illustrator, Paula Metcalf, comes a witty and fun-filled story of friendship. Walter is really a very neat and tidy dog. His house is his pride and joy and he gets quite nervous when guests come round...When his best friend Pansy asks to stay, though, Walter is so excited! She's just a teeny weeny squirrel after all, how much trouble can she possibly be?! But when Pansy tries her very best to be helpful things just seem to keep going wrong! Nothing - from Walter's trousers to his curtains to his beloved brand-new teapot - is safe from accident-prone Pansy! Is she turning out to be the worst guest there ever was?
