I took a chance on getting this book, thinking it would be as wonderful as Smily Shark. MISTAKE. This story is about an octopus that likes to tickle other fish. He tickles an oyster and he drops his pearl way deep in the ocean. The octopus learns he has great skills by having to squeeze himself through narrow passages in the ocean to reach the pear (that's the moral). However, there are some seriously scary pictures of a catfish and some other animals that he faces as he goes deeper in the ocean. I didn't even like the pictures myself. Needless to say, I only read it once and will probably donate the book. Make sure you see the pages in the book befor you purchase it. Smily Shark is the best I think.
This is a cute, fun story with bright and colorful illustrations. I just bought this book for my 2 1/2 year old daughter. She really enjoys it, and I enjoy reading it to her - which is a good thing since she always wants me to read it "one more time, please".
This is my grandson's favorite book! I bought it to read to him when he was about 18 mos old. Six months later he is still requesting it every night and "reads" it on his own, too, almost every day. The colors are bright and full of his favorite sea creatures which hold his interest. There are not so many words that I get tired of reading, and the pages can be torn but not easily. It was beginning to get worn from frequent toddler exploration, so we recently purchased a second Tickly Octopus to make sure he never has to be without it.
