Overview

Discover the mysterious, magnificent octopus!

Follow a goggle-eyed octopus as she jets through the shadows, tentacles flying behind her. Finally she finds a well-hidden den in which to lay her eggs, which will dangle from the roof like grapes on a string. In silky verse, Karen Wallace explores the mysterious world of the octopus, while Mike Bostock’s flowing illustrations bring that world vividly to life.
Back matter includes an afterword, resources for further information, a glossary, and an index.

About the Author

Karen Wallace says octopuses have always had a special place in her imagination, from the storybook monsters of folklore to the young octopus she once watched escape from a fish trap, climb down a ladder, and sink back into the safety of the sea.

Mike Bostock, while illustrating GENTLE GIANT OCTOPUS, became fascinated by his subjects—the delicate changing color and texture of their skin, the rubbery, rippling way they move, and their transparent soap-bubble-like babies.

Bought this for my 3 yrs old grandson who loves octopus. The illustrations are wonderful and very age appropriate material. If your child likes octopus this is a great choice! Or for that matter any child will like it.
