5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful but sad, 9 Mar 2011
Octopuses are amongst my favourite animals because they can do so many amazing things. This book tells the story of a mother octopus. Some people feel that octopuses are weird, scary creatures. While this book shows most of the amazing things that octopuses can do, it doesn't dwell on the weirdness of this octopus, but emphasises an aspect that we can all relate to: taking care of her young. The language is poetic, but accurate. However, despite being a very good book, it is a bit of a tearjerker. Octopuses only reproduce once in their lives. After her eggs hatch, the mother octopus dies. The great accomplishment of this book is that, without anthropomorphizing the octopus (making her seem more human), you feel sad about this.

5.0 out of 5 stars An informative book, beautifully illustrated, 14 Dec 1999
This book would interest any child who likes sea creatures. There are plenty of facts about octopuses, poetically worded, and presented in small blocks (not huge chunks) of text. The illustrations are beautifully drawn and coloured.
