Can the OCTOPUPPY be the perfect pet?
Edgar wanted a dog. Instead, he got an octopus named Jarvis.
Jarvis is brilliant and does his best to act like the dog Edgar wants, but nothing he does is good enough to please Edgar. Ultimately, Edgar recognizes that while Jarvis might not be the dog he wanted, he is special in his own endearing way.
It has a nice message (people can only be themselves, so don’t try to make them someone else!) and the illustrations are cute, but it’s not one I’d return to reading again and again.
I love the funky illustrations and all the fun things going on in them. There’s a great message of accepting others and being yourself!
