Octopuppy is about a boy who wishes for a puppy but instead he gets an octopus named Jarvis. Can he turn this octopus into the puppy of his dreams? Or can he learn to accept Jarvis as the wonderful individual animal he is?

This book is just plain cute. Beautiful illustrations combine with a powerful message about friendship and acceptance. Octopuppy has something for everyone!

Description


Can the OCTOPUPPY be the perfect pet?
Edgar wanted a dog. Instead, he got an octopus named Jarvis.
Jarvis is brilliant and does his best to act like the dog Edgar wants, but nothing he does is good enough to please Edgar. Ultimately, Edgar recognizes that while Jarvis might not be the dog he wanted, he is special in his own endearing way.
Young readers will love the funny, imaginative illustrations that are paired with a relatable lesson of appreciating the greatness of what we have in front of us.
