Melissa’s octopus and other unsuitable pets by Charlotte Voake (2014)

[Published by Walker Books]


This book contains a merry collection of inappropriate pets, and while they might technically be considered unsuitable, they are still awesome. A chameleon anyone?

I love that Simon’s main issue with having a worm for a pet is that he doesn’t know which end to talk to!

When Kevin and Bertrand become the proud new owners of a crocodile, they can’t wait to show him off to their friends. “Look at its glittering teeth!” It turns out some pets are more unsuitable than others.

Loads of fun, and fabulously illustrated.


Check out Melissa’s octopus at Auckland Libraries.
