From armadillos, flamingos and umbrella birds to quokkas and iguanas, Elli Woollard presents a lovely collection of poems for younger children about pets which are just a little bit peculiar... Filled with fun rhymes, quirky black-and-white illustrations and exotic animals, this book is perfect for reading aloud. Some poems are hilarious, some are gruesome and some will make you want to wash your hair, but there's sure to be a pet poem here for every child and adult alike.

Really enjoyed reading this book to my little girl, she sat there and listened while I read it. I also enjoy how the alphabet is in there so we can learn while we read

I read this to my little girl who is 5 , she can read simple words but would struggle to read some of the poems on herself in this book. Each page is a letter of the alphabet with a little poem about an animal that begins with that letter. My daughter is animal mad and absolutely loved the rhymes and drawings in this cute little book .

We have a couple of Elli Woolard books (we specifically like The Great Gran Plan) so I was looking forward to reading this.bMy daughter likes the Slug and Tucan asking for me to read those again. I think this book with grow with her and as she gets older she will really begin to enjoy these poems.

This book is full of little poems. My daughter enjoyed listening to the poems and it also has the alphabet all the way through, which is good for children. It’s a good book for putting down for a bit and coming back to. I would of gave it 5 stars but the drawings have no colour and so it lost my daughters attention a lot.

This is a nice book of poetry about unusual pets. It’s a bit beyond my little one at the moment though and doesn’t hold her attention for very long but I think she’ll like it when she’s a bit older.
