I thought this book was a quite enjoyable to read. I also had the pleasure of reading it to four of my grandchildren a boy age 4 and a pair of 6 year old boys and a just turned 8 year old girl. I share their ages because I think it's something good if assorted ages of children enjoy having a book read to them, this one did that.. This is the amusing tale of 2 different fish that meet up and fall in love. After their fun and romantic days of dating, they have a fairy tale wedding and soon after become parents of eight. The story is cleverly written in poem which is always fun for little ones but even the 8 year old was amused by the funny rhymes that told the story what happened that changed octopus for ever. This is a charming story of how the octopus got 8 arms. The writing is so clever and a delight to read for children and for their parents or grandparents as well. This is a clever story and a plot that is very endearing and should be a wonderful gift for the holidays.
The colorful pictures are a delight and depict the story quite well.
This is a delightful story written by Yvonne Arroyo, illustrated inside by Carl Wanzung and with a beautiful cover created by Carla Francesca Castagno
