Have you ever had trouble getting a little one ready for the first day of school? Can you imagine if your little one was an octopus who is a master of disguise and an escape artist? Well, that’s what this book is all about:
This clever picture book is a fresh twist to the classic first-day-of-school-themed-story. Children will giggle when they hear Becky Scharnhorst’s humorous tale, told in “how to” structure, of a reluctant octopus who hides and disguises himself (as octopuses are known to do to evade capture) to avoid going to school. Jaclyn Sinquett’s bright, expressive illustrations will have readers turning the pages to search for where the octopus has hidden himself next. This book has all you could hope for in a picture book: engaging text and art, a seek-and-find element, surprise “undies” under the jacket cover, illustrated end pages, humor, heart, and even back matter full of “mostly” true facts about octopuses. I love HOW TO GET YOUR OCTOPUS TO SCHOOL and I think you will too!
