If you've ever seen one of those wonderful videos of an octopus slipping itself effortlessly into a jar, you will have a good idea of what awaits you in this giggly book.  I sat and read it to a favorite four-year old of mine and he was so sharp-eyed. He could find that octopus on every page before I finished turning it.  That's a big part of the fun of this story. Where is that octopus now?

This octopus has some ideas of his/her own about going or not going to school and his friend has the slippery task of getting this sea creature to that amazing place called school.  Fun.
