Reviews

"Dockray's lively illustrations portray the action and add to the humor of this cheery, unusual pet story...a grand addition to any pet-themed read-aloud session. " - Kirkus
"It's a goofy, good-natured story of a decidedly nontraditional pet." - Publishers Weekly
It's a really cute story about seeing strengths in others and not being upset when people (or pets) don't conform to the standards we think they should. Izzy and Oscar is a lighthearted, funny, and sweet book that kids will love.

The illustrations by Tracy Dockray are sweet and colorful. In addition to a fun story that teaches that we love others for who they are not who we want them to be, you will also find 12 Octofacts at the end of the story.
My girls both loved this book. My older one had fun spouting off the facts that she learned at the end, and both of them found the book humorous and cute.
This book is flat out adorable! From it's bright and happy illustrations, down to the fun pirate-themed story both myself and my Littlest Little loved reading it...This will make a perfect gift for young boys and girls who love to read, or love to be read to!

Izzy and Oscar is beautifully illustrated and shows how we can all be truly unique and yet loved for who we are.

"This exciting story is full of rich vocabulary, beautiful pencil and dye illustrations, and belly-laugh humor that young children will love. " - School Library Journal
In this amusing book we see how friendships can sometimes be a little rocky at the beginning, especially if your friend happens to be an octopus. Children will be amused to see how Izzy and Oscar resolve their problem in a rather unconventional way.
