Emile The Helpful Octopus Book

Regular price $18.95

More legs = more ways to lend a hand. No matter your age, you won't regret meeting Emile the octopus in this illustrated children's book by Tomi Ungerer.

Description: Emile is a charming tale about an eight-legged hero that will delight two-legged readers of all ages. From Tomi Ungerer, one of the world's most famous and best-loved children's authors. Emile is an eight-legged hero who has twice as much courage and four times as many legs as most people – except, of course, other octopuses. When deep-sea diver Captain Samovar is attacked by a ferocious shark, Emile comes to his aid. Grateful to his rescuer, the Captain invites him to stay at his home, where Emile sleeps in a bathtub full of salt water. Emile turns out to be a fantastic octopus: he is a gifted musician (able to play three instruments simultaneously) and a great lifeguard, teaching children to swim and saving people from drowning. One day, Emile and the Captain, who works on a police launch, encounter a suspicious-looking boat in the ocean, with a dangerous group of smugglers on board... A picture book for ages 5-8.
