Overview

Izzy & Oscar by Allison Estes, Dan Stark, Tracy Dockray

Have you ever taught an octopus to roll over? It's harder than it looks. Discover why octopuses make the best pets in this charming picture book about friendship and embracing individuality!

Izzy has always wanted a pet. So when an adventurous octopus squiggles into town, Izzy decides to keep him. After all, a real pirate captain has to have a mascot. Oscar is not very good at going for walks or playing fetch. (Although he is amazing at hide and seek). And he's definitely not like other pets...
But he is just right for Izzy.

Readers will be tickled by Izzy's attempts to teach Oscar to behave like a dog, a parrot, a pony-and gratified by Izzy's realization that in the end we love others for who they are...eight arms and all!

This book was a huge hit with my kids. They loved the idea of having an unconventional pet and they laughed at all the things Izzy tries to get Oscar to do (like snuggle or perch on her shoulder). It's a really cute story about seeing strengths in others and not being upset when people (or pets) don't conform to the standards we think they should. Izzy and Oscar is a lighthearted, funny, and sweet book that kids will love. The illustrations are fantastic. Personality practically dances off the page as they bring the story to life. The artist captured Izzy's quirky sense of style, imagination, and drama. Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
