It’s a quirky, pretty bonkers idea that an octopus would land on anybody’s roof but if one were to I would quite like this one as it is fluorescent orange! Will they drive away their spectacular, tentacular chum … or will they realise just how helpful and fun an octopus can be?

I loved the ending where you think the Octopus had gone but he fetched his friends and they all landed on the houses! tells the story of a huge, orange octopus that one day appears on the roof of a young family’s house – and, despite the best efforts of the fire brigade, it seems determined to stay there! There are facts about where they live, what they eat and even how many hearts they have, so your kids will learn a great deal about the 8-legged sea creature. A brilliantly bonkers story about an octopus who lives on the roof, by two award-winning and bestselling picture book creators. It looks like things are not going to work out well until the neighbourhood children discover what a great playmate an octopus can be.

It begins with an octopus landing on a house and a neighbour clearly stating ‘An octopus does NOT belong. A kid describes what happens when a giant fluorescent orange octopus lands on their house and cannot be moved away. He studied languages at Oxford University and has written over 40 titles, one of which led to him being awarded the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011. The book is fun to read aloud, because the octopus is, “something quite spectacular, miraculous, tentacular.This story was a little bit longer than the previous book so at times she struggled with her attention. The Children’s Book Award is the only national award for children’s books that is voted for entirely by children. I bought this for my Grandsons 1st birthday as he already brings books to us that he wants us to read. In fact, the octopus turns out to be a huge help through the whole year – clearing snow from driveways with its giant tentacles, finding toys stuck in trees and being a frankly spectacular Christmas tree. When a giant octopus arrives, the children LOVE their new friend; he makes the perfect slide and is fantastic at football!
