I am not an octopus  Cover Image Book Book

I am not an octopus / Eoin McLaughlin ; illustrated by Marc Boutavant.

McLaughlin, Eoin, (author.). Boutavant, Marc, (illustrator.).


Terry is definitely not an octopus. He's just a regular guy who happens to have a few extra limbs and a love of tuna. But again, he is NOT an octopus. Look, if he were an octopus, he'd be living in the ocean, right? Not to mention going to Super Octopus Fantasea Adventure World. He definitely wouldn't be on land, unless he was afraid of the water. Which he absolutely isn't! OK, perhaps just a LITTLE. Maybe, just maybe, it's time he learned how to swim. Terry shows what it means to be brave in this very silly story about facing your fears and accepting who you really are.
