Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Octopus loves living on the busy reef under the sea. From her cozy cave, she can see clown fish, and sea turtles, and little butterflies swimming by. She especially loves watching the seahorses having fun, wiggling and twirling. Sometimes she will play with them, but occasionally Octopus just wants to be alone, somewhere quiet, and not so busy. So one day, she swims far, far beyond the reef and finds another cozy cave, only here she is perfectly, wonderfully alone. It is exactly what she wanted . . . until she’s ready to go back home to be with her friends.
As she did in Little Owl's Night, Divya Srinivasan shows children a wonderful part of the natural world in a very warm-hearted way.

Synopsis:

"An exquisite picture book. A little fish, the lone survivor of a school of fish swallowed by a tuna, devises a plan to camouflage himself and his new companions."--"School Library Journal, " starred review. ALA Notable Book; Caldecott Honor Book. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Readers can experience "The Dragonfly Difference" within each Dragonfly book — two full pages of activities, inspired by the book, are on the inside front and back covers. From playful puzzles and fascinating facts to delicious recipes and delightful art projects, the fun continues long after the story is finished!

About the Author

Leo Lionni, an internationally known designer, illustrator, and graphic artist, was born in Holland and lived in Italy until he came to the United States in 1939. He was the recipient of the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was honored posthumously in 2007 with the Society of Illustrators’ Lifetime Achievement Award. His picture books are distinguished by their enduring moral themes, graphic simplicity and brilliant use of collage, and include four Caldecott Honor Books: Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Hailed as “a master of the simple fable” by the Chicago Tribune, he died in 1999 at the age of 89.

I grew up on this beautiful book and intend to pass it on to my little nieces and nephews. The illustrations are legendary and the story is sweet and down-to-earth. An outstanding addition to any child's library.
