Melissa's Octopus and Other Unsuitable Pets Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Charlotte Voake


From acclaimed artist Charlotte Voake comes a perfectly paced, wickedly dark, laugh-out-loud picture book about very unsuitable pets!In this laugh-out-loud, riotous new book from picture book master Charlotte Voake, follow Melissa, her friends, and all their rather 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.
