Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—It's "bedtime ahoy!," or so says an octopus to a child who lives on a houseboat in New York City. When Octopus invites him to take "a nice warm bath," he reveals the bath is made of egg salad. The boy responds, "Gross! No thank you, Octopus." As the sea creature continues to offer the boy increasingly silly things (such as drying off with a tuba, putting his pj's on the Statue of Liberty, or brushing his teeth with paint brushes), he remains unfailingly polite, saying each time, "No, thank you, Octopus." The gags end when the boy puts Octopus in a giant bear hug before they tuck into their bunk beds. The humorous narrative consists of simple dialogue conveyed with speech bubbles—perfect for early-elementary sensibilities. Colorful double-page spreads are filled with details that extend the text and support repeated readings.—Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI

This book made me and my child giggle out loud from start to finish. This is the second book by this author and looking forward to more to add to our collection.

Whimsical and silly, this is a book that is as much fun for the grown-ups to read as it is for the children. I would particularly read it if you live in or near New York, as there are some references my children didn't get. Recommended.

I honestly tried to hide this book last night so I wouldn't have to read it for the hundredth time. Beautiful illustrations. Highly recommend.

Ordered this for my boyfriends nephew, and we almost didn't give it to him because we enjoyed reading it so much. It's cute and funny and the illustrations are rich and adorable. We love this book!
