Meanwhile, Wet and Wild is a pet shop in North London. The animals who reside there get into mishaps and become known in the town. There is a cat who manipulates minds, a terrier who can climb walls and ceilings and a chameleon who loves to dance. The shop owner, Roderick, has issues of his own, and when Brian begins working as his assistant things became even more interesting. Each chapter kept my interest, and each animal's unique talent makes this an interesting, if weird, book to read.
I do not usually reach for fantasy novels, but this one caught my attention. It is quite humorous in parts, but when the reader buys into Brian's communication with the animals, things get more than a little troubling. I believe that if you decide to read Wet & Wild you will get a few laughs and an interesting read, but you will never look at your (or your neighbor's) pet in the same way again.
