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
