Octopus Escapes Again!

By Laurie Ellen Angus

32 pages, paperback, $8.95, ISBN 978-1-58469-578-3

The octopus has eight strong arms with hundreds of suction cups. It can spray a confusing cloud of ink. It can move with jet-propulsion speed. It can instantly change both color and texture to “disappear”. It can shape-shift its boneless body to squeeze into any shape or pass through tiny openings. It cannot go without food.

Laurie Ellen Angus grew up near the beach and could often be found knee deep in the water searching with delight for sea creatures to play with.
