What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Agnes has a beak that can crush bones and arms and stretch wide as a car―but that doesn’t make her a monster! After she comes across a postcard, Agnes, a giant Pacific octopus, strikes up a correspondence with various other creatures below―and above―the waves. Readers will delight in this unlikely introduction to the octopus life cycle.

This was a very fun idea, and has a lot of information about octopuses. However, the format made it difficult for my four-year-old to follow. It’s a cute book, so maybe we’ll try again in a few years!
