Product Details

Praise

Debut author Tokuda-Hall offers a capricious crash course in the elements and boundless possibilities of story…freewheeling digital art keeps pace with the encouraging narration, and the concluding image—of a rocket scientist water-skiing atop a rhino while wearing a colander on her head—cements the idea that, when it comes to storytelling, anything is possible.
—Publishers Weekly

Mixing deadpan humor with whimsical, endearing characters, Tokuda-Hall spins a reader-friendly metanarrative out of a wickedly absurd premise. Filled with numerous shades of purple, yellow, and blue, Davies’ inspired digital artwork springs from the page, like bursts of an overactive imagination…A perceptive how-to for beginner storytellers.
—Kirkus Reviews

Funny and engaging, this book has an interactive quality that will inspire kids to imagine a story of their own.
—Booklist

The bubbly, appealing art has punchy humor and works as an ongoing conversation with the narration, bringing the fumbling but exciting progress of crafting a new story to life…This entertaining read-aloud will jump-start imaginations and create opportunities for thinking about existing tales as well as for making new ones.
—School Library Journal

A superfun story that completely engages the imagination (while actually teaching kids about constructing a good story), "Also an Octopus" is first rate in every way.
—Reading Eagle (from Kendal Rautzhan’s "Books to Borrow")
