About this title:

Synopsis: Highlighted by bright, bold artwork, this humorous tale of a little girl's inability to say no to a big, cuddly octopus with no home, will make young readers laugh out loud.

From Kirkus Reviews: 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. Yaccarino (see review above) keeps the plot simple: When a girl drags home an octopus, her dad decides the eight-legger is one pet too many. 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. She's sad, but not for long; during the return trip, a dinosaur follows her home. The lumpy animal portraits are perfect at conveying the larger animals' bulk; the creatures packed into one room look like escaped balloons from Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Smaller creatures are painted creatively, too: Penguins line the refrigerator rack like a row of bowling pins, and rabbits appear to be part bunny, part carrot. (Picture book. 3-8) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
