This book is really worth highlighting for its subject matter. I have been searching for books to support safeguarding and this book fits the bill. Jun and the Octopus is told in the style of a folktale from Asia. This story will provoke discussions about how it is not always a stranger that is a tricky person, sometimes the perpetrator is closer to home. It is beautifully illustrated and and the subject matter is handled gently. I feel that this book is a trailblazer for Singapore where sexuality is rarely discussed in children’s books.
