“Fans of all things octopi will find an extensive resource in this detailed and elaborately illustrated title […] Highly recommended for early elementary nonfiction collections.”
Booklist

“Every page is a visual feast - and with plenty for children (and adults) to learn from, this is one we always recommend for young nature lovers.”
—Golden Hare Books 


“In this book is a plethora of information about intelligence, their diets, mimicry, and conservation.  I’m obsessed with the bright graphics and have been known to read it out loud to people at home while excitedly pointing at illustrations. Seriously, get your hands on a copy of this immediately and let’s talk.”
The Tiny Activist

“The art is just stunning. Simple, geometric shapes somehow become amazing animals and seascapes. The color palette is mesmerizing. He stays in the center of the spectrum – no black or white – and the result is pleasing while staying true to his subject. And, yes, the text lives up to the quality of the art. Like the art, there is a playfulness about the information, but it never gets too twee.”
