If I Had an Octopus – Gabby Dawney & Alex Barrow
Not a take on the Peter, Paul & Mary hit If I Had A Hammer, but rather a book in which our main protagonist sings the praises of the octopus and why this animal would make the most brilliant pet.
The multitude of arms would allow the octopus to multi-task like no other, the lack of bones would make the octopus a very good player of hide and seek, and the ability of this particular octopus to camouflage itself would allow for excellent tricks to be played on people.
