Also an Octopus

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Imagine that you were making up a story. First, you'd need a character. A ukulele-playing octopus, perhaps. Then, you have to give the octopus a desire of some kind - maybe it dreams of travelling to faraway galaxies in a purple spaceship. But every character needs an obstacle to overcome, and when the octopus sets out to build its own spaceship out of glue, umbrellas, glitter and waffles, he doesn't have much luck. Could there be another character that could help?

This is a lovely story about storytelling which extends the invitation to the reader to continue the tale after the last page has been turned.

The naughty antics of a medley of rebellious animals will provoke plenty of giggles in this exuberant tale of merriment, which is wonderful to read aloud.
