Anyone who has ever seen an octopus suddenly change colour – or take the cap off a bottle or squeeze through a tiny space – knows what magical creatures they are.
Ten year old Emily Dickinson is about to discover just how magical. On the worst day of her life, she makes two unusual friends: one who has two legs, and one who has eight.
Can her new friends help Emily stand up to the school bullies? Find out in this fantastical adventure which is packed full of jokes, poems and action.
My Pet Octopus Is A Top Darts Player Book One is the first in a series of children’s novels.
