An unlikely pair, Cowboy and Octopus have a great day together playing together, helping each other and deciding on Halloween costumes together, among other things. This story is quite interesting. The humor is not really appropriate for preschool-age children, in my opinion. They won't understand why an octopus dressed up like a shark is not scary, but dressed up as the tooth fairy, he is.

I also don't like picture books that attempt to make chapters out of 32 pages.
