This is a strange book about an odd-couple friendship between a cowboy and an octopus. Told in short Vignettes, there are multiple stories in the book that don't really fit together other than the fact that they star Cowboy and Octopus. The humor is at times too subltle and at times obtuse. I am not sure many students would get it.

The illustrations are zany collages that student will find interesting--especially when Octopus is in a tut and has a wand and when there are real pictures of beans, beans, and more beans.
