by Maggie Tokuda-Hall, illustrated by Benji Davies
Candlewick Press, October 4, 2016
ALSO AN OCTOPUS is a goofy, whimsical delight about waffles and ukulele-playing octopods and rocket-scientist bunny rabbits. BUT! IT is also about creativity, storytelling, and how stories are structured, and how to write a book, basically. And it will no doubt fuel the imaginations of kids and their grown-ups alike.
Debut author Tokuda-Hall offers a capricious crash course in the elements and boundless possibilities of story. --Publishers Weekly
Mixing deadpan humor with whimsical, endearing characters, Tokuda-Hall spins a reader-friendly metanarrative out of a wickedly absurd premise...A perceptive how-to for beginner storytellers. --Kirkus
Funny and engaging, this book has an interactive quality that will inspire kids to imagine a story of their own.
