Praise for Charlie and the Octopus :

“Charlie and the Octopus is truly heartwarming, as well as very funny. It’s a blend of traditional picture book and graphic novel format, which kept me engaged and the story moving ahead. It’s a wonderful story about a boy and his cephalopod and a cuddly bedtime read.”
