Ori the Octopus is the bright, engaging tale of Ori, his eight legs, and his desire to help his friends…The story is a celebration of teamwork, of friends rallying around each other, and that is something every young reader needs to learn about. The book also includes some helpful notes to teachers and parents about the characters and tips on how to talk about the character’ feelings with their children. In addition there are cut-out characters that look like a whole lot of fun for readers who want to get creative.

My toddler loved the book! The pictures are bright, colourful and interesting. The story itself has a lovely message about friendship and is very engaging due to repetitive language that almost becomes a song. She became very familiar with the Octopus and kept pointing him out.  The cut out pictures at the back was a great way to spend the afternoon and keep her entertained. Highly recommended as a gift or for your ow children, the book will be read over and over with some great characters to get to know and love!
