GI­RAFFES and pel­i­cans are child’s play for bearded dragon owner Orla O’Sul­li­van.

The 10-year-old and her scaly pal Light­ning Bolt have been room­mates at Hol­loways Beach for the last four months and have no plans of chang­ing their cur­rent ar­range­ment.

Orla said she loved un­usual an­i­mals and read­ing about them in her favourite books, which al­most all fea­tured an­i­mals or magic.

“I’ve read some Roald Dahl books like Esio Trot and Matilda,” she said.

She said she liked hav­ing to use her imag­i­na­tion when she was read­ing.

“I’ve learnt quite a lot of vo­cab­u­lary words from read­ing books,” she said.

“Every­one should be read­ing books, even if they’re younger than my brother, who’s eight.”

She said she planned to keep read­ing books about un­usual crea­tures like drag­ons and wild an­i­mals.

The Gi­raffe and the Pelly and Me is the next ti­tle avail­able to read­ers of the Cairns Post in the Roald Dahl li­brary col­lec­tion.

Col­lect your token on this page to buy the book for just $2.60.

Books can be claimed at par­tic­i­pat­ing newsagents, Wool­worths and IGA stores.
