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

I got this book for one of my nieces, and she absolutely loves it. Last time I called, she kept quoting lines from the book back to me.

Thank You, Octopus might be a new children's classic.

Thank you, Octopus is an adorable quick read for little readers and listeners about a helpful octopus that often assists his friend in unexpected and unwanted ways. Kids will belly giggle over the silliness and Fans of Mo Williams will appreciate this lovable eight legged character.

My 3 year old son loves this book! It's such a silly book and we get lots of giggles out of it! The book is nice and short so its perfect for bedtime, especially if you have one that likes you to read the book over and over again!

Charming story, adorable illustrations and pure fun! My 5 and 2 year old daughters love this book, and they often reference various quotes from the book even when we're not reading it. It is the one book they always want to go back to at bedtime, and it never fails to get them in a fit of giggles. Look forward to seeing more work from this author!

My 4 year old son laughed so hard he fell off the couch during the first reading of THANK YOU, OCTOPUS.
"One more time!" he said, as it ended.
Moments later, he fell off the couch again.

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.
