He's determined to train his new puppy. Sit. Stay. Fetch. What could go wrong? It's just that Edgar's dog happens to be an octopus. A peculiarly brilliant octopus at that.
Edgar's life is about to change forever."
Sidney Morning Herald:
"Absurd without being abstract, it tells the story of a young boy, Edgar, and his over-achieving pet Jarvis, an octopus the boy desperately wishes was a dog.
The book brims with humour, from the odd-couple pairing of serious, blazer-and-tie-wearing Edgar with Jarvis the silly, slippery spectacle, to the concept of an octopus trying to pass as a dog (let alone a fruit-turban-topped octopus playing piano while juggling and ballet dancing). The minimal text means the expressive, fun illustrations deliver the punchlines. The message - to accept others as they are and see the value in that - is worthwhile, too."
"This is an adorable picture book for all readers. What a wonderfully enjoyable picture book that had me giggling while reading it. "

Author JOY SMITH uses children’s love of animals to show them the benefits of sharing, cooperating, and trying new things. Written from a bird's perspective, this charming story teaches that friendship is found in the least likely places. In it, a nestling wren who wants to soar high in the sky, like the big birds, tumbles into the lair of a cranky seagull protecting his catch. The pair find out they have much in common. Best suited for children ages three to eight. [close]

In this second book of the popular Land of Nod Trilogy, Jeff Browning continues his quest to find his father in the strange new world he has discovered. His journey takes him across a savage wilderness in which danger is inescapable.
While Jeff searches for The Prophet, his friend, Artimus, faces a less obvious but just as deadly maze of political conspiracies as he tries to convince a reluctant public that the invasion he helped thwart was only the beginning of a much more serious threat.
An epic science fiction, fantasy adventure with action and intrigue on every page.
