Angry Octopus is a kid-friendly character that children around the world relate to. He made his television debut on ABC’s Shark Tank. I wrote my first relaxation story to help my own son fall asleep when he was just 5 years old. Now, a man, he is helping me write for others. It is a great gift that my son has shared his voice throughout this coloring book. The quotes within were contributed by Austin Lite.
Angry Octopus books, stories, parent guide, curriculum, CDs, music, and lesson plans by Lori Lite are also available.
