No Place for an Octopus is a sweet and sensory journey about an unusual friendship between a boy and an octopus. After discovering an octopus in the rock pools at the beach, the boy imagines all of the adventures they could share if he took the octopus home. His realisation that the octopus may be happier where he currently is - in the rock pools - uncovers a deeper conservation message about how animals are best left in their natural environment.No Place for an Octopus is a sweet and sensory journey about an unusual friendship between a boy and an octopus.
