Octopus Soup

Octopus Soup
by Mercer Mayer
picture book
Tarrytown, NY : Marshall Cavendish Children, 2011

A young octopus leaves home-sweet-home to explore the world. Almost immediately his actions get him into trouble. As he flees from a growing number of pursuers the young octopus ends up on a frog's face, in a melon display and in a soup pot. Will his innocent adventure end in tragedy? Or will this young explorer decide that the ocean floor is the best place for him? Mercer Mayer has delivered a fabulous wordless story to be enjoyed by all. The main story is amazing, but be sure to look at the details and read all the signs as some of the funniest moments are hiding in
the backgrounds!
