This little picture book starts out with a quirky little story about an octopus and a boy. The octopus seems to be taking care of the boy and when it is time for bed, the octopus has prepared a nice warm bath …… of egg salad!! “No thank you, Octopus!” says the boy. And when it is time to brush his teeth, the Octopus wants to brush the boy’s teeth ……. with paint brushes!! “No thank you, Octopus!” says the boy. When the octopus is assuring the boy that there are no monsters under his bed …… he has put them all in the closet!! “No thank you, Octopus!” So the story continues in this way; and by the time it is finished, children and adults will definitely appreciate the author’s offbeat sense of humor. Very clever!
