Melissa's Octopus and Other Unsuitable Pets

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.
