The Lovereading4Kids comment
A charming introduction to some very surprising but most unsuitable pets! Melissa loves her octopus but soon finds that an octopus is a tricky pet to keep – especially at bath-time! Betty has trouble of a different kind with her pet. A chameleon is all very well but it can be vey difficult to find…And it turns out that a worm, a giraffe and an elephant all have their difficulties too. But there is no doubt that Kevin and Bertrand have the very worse pet of all…and that’s all because of his very, very sharp teeth!
Melissa's Octopus and Other Unsuitable Pets by Charlotte Voake
Melissa, Thomas, Betty and Arthur all have one thing in common...their EXTREMELY unsuitable pets! There are certain animals that make suitable pets, like a cat, a dog or a guinea pig. Then there are other animals that definitely make UNSUITABLE pets, like an octopus, a warthog or an elephant. They are much too large, too messy and, well, just a tad free-spirited. They also have a tendency to break things...like floors, ceilings and tables. But can you guess what makes the MOST unsuitable pet EVER? Here's a clue...he has a long, scaly green tail and VERY sharp teeth. Comical and original, this animal-filled book will be a delight to parents and children alike. Make sure to watch out for a rather delicious surprise ending...
This is a riotous new book from picture book master Charlotte Voake that asks the reader - what exactly makes a pet unsuitable?
