Overview

When Octopus Mum takes her eight children on a special trip under the sea, the little octopuses have lots of fun. They blow bubbles with parrot fish, dance with shrimp, play hide-and-seek with angelfish, and meet many other sea creatures. A scary eel with pointy teeth gives chase, but the octopuses swim away as quickly as they can, and at last arrive safely at a surprise destination. Playful verse and bright paintings bursting with sea life capture the excitement and wonder of a first outing with Mother, making this a perfect choice for the very young.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Eight little octopuses follow their Octopus Mum as she leads them through their ocean habitat. They visit the gold and white striped clown fish that live among the sea anemone, encounter crabs and turtles among the weeds and reeds, and float with the jelly fish. But danger lurks in the form of a hungry eel. The octopi squirt a dark cloud of ink and manage to escape. Told in rhyming verse with anthropomorphic creatures, young kids will enjoy the story with its look at sea life, a slight touch of danger, and a decidedly happy ending.
