Children's Book Review: Squid and Octopus Friends for Always
Squid and Octopus Friends for Always
Written and illustrated by: Tao Nyeu
Published by: Dial Books for Young Readers, 2012
A friend for always is someone who... knows how to cheer you up when you're feeling droopy, usually sees things your way, and never lets a quarrel get out of hand. As you'll see in these endearing, silly stories, a friend for always is the very best thing in the deep blue sea.
* This picture book is actually four short stories in one. Each story tells about the friendship of Squid and Octopus. The stories are simple but sweet. There is a lot of detail to the illustrations and I liked the color choice and use of blue, green, and orange. The commentary and side dialogue by the various sea creatures added humor to the stories. This was an enjoyable book to read to the kids.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
