Title: Octopus Soup
Author: Mercer Mayer
An octopus struggles with misadventure when he leaves home but is relieved to know how and where to find a safe haven.
Early one morning an octopus leaves the safety of his parents’ home and sets out on the adventure of his life. He climbs into a boat, hides in a tackle box, gets thrown to shore, scuttles to a restaurant, plunges into a water pitcher, escapes from a greedy chef, hides among some melons, gets chased back to the ocean, narrowly avoids being made into Octopus Soup, and finally swims home to his mom’s loving tentacles. With graphic, digital artwork, Mercer Mayer takes you on a wordless journey you’ll never forget!
