" Charlie and the Octopus is

truly heartwarming, as well

as very funny. It's a blend

of traditional picture book

and graphic novel format,

which kept me engaged and

the story moving ahead. It's

a wonderful story about a

boy and his cephalopod and

a cuddly bedtime read." -- Dan Yaccarino "award-winning children's book author, illustrator, and television producer"
