The best part about this book is octo-bear (pictured on cover), a stuffed bear with octopus legs within the pages of this read. The story itself left something to be desired — I must admit, when I told my teen about this book, we both were very much looking forward to learning how one puts an octopus to bed, though we did not learn how one accomplishes this.
The book talks about bed time and bath time and snacks before bed and the book ends (spoiler alert) with the octo-kid sneaking a snack to bed ‘for octo-bear’ and that’s it– THE END. I literally asked, “IS THAT THE END?”
Happy this is a library loan and will never read again. I don’t recommend teaching children to sneak food in the night to go to sleep once their parents go to bed.
Books will surprise you!
