In hilarious verse Ted Hughes introduces us to his extraordinary family, including a Granny who happens to be an octopus and his father, the Chief Inspector of Holes.

Other folks get so well known,

And nobody knows about my own, '
Have you met my sister Jane? She's a great big crow! My Grandpa is an owler and Grandma knits jerseys for wasps! And my other Granny is an octopus.

Meet Aunt Flo, Brother Bert and more extraordinary family members in Ted Hughes's irresistible Meet My Folks, his first book for children.
