I like octopuses, so when I discovered this book I had to have it. It's about a little girl who has gradually built up a veritible zoo . Actually, she leads the animals home, but the octopus, at least, seems to follow her quite willingly. It's about a little girl who has gradually built up a veritible zoo from all the animals that have "followed" her home: a crocodile, a giraffe, seals, grizzly bear, elephants - her tastes seem to run towards large animals. Actually, she leads the animals home, but the octopus, at least, seems to follow her quite willingly
One day she is followed home by an octopus. I'm not that keen on Dan Yaccarino (creator of Oswald), but my kids really like his books and illustrations. They are simple and sometimes silly and my kids like them
One day she is followed home by an octopus. When she asks her father if it can stay her father lists off all the other animals that are already in his house. He goes through every place in the house and lists off each animal that is staying there. At the end of the book, the father says no to the octopus staying and the little girl is once again followed home by another creature. They are simple and sometimes silly and my kids like them. This one had the same effect on me as all his other books and the same effect on my kids as all his other books have.

Dad finally has had it and sends his daughter out to take the eight-legged creature back to the sea. She isn't too upset, since she picks up another stray (a dinosaur) on the way home.
He points out that she's already collected the mountain goats on the roof, a bear snoozing behind the sofa, and a refrigerator full of penguins. Reluctantly, the little girl tosses her pal back into the briny deep. Assembling a menagerie of pets to perturb parents is nothing new, found in Steven Kellogg's Can I Keep Him? (1971) and Jake Wolf's Daddy Could I Have an Elephant? (1996), to name two. Superb illustrations make this take on the idea especially memorable.
