Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees have paired up for loads of brilliant picture books, and Jolly Olly octopus is vintage them. We’ve got:
- bright crazy illustrations
- a fast-paced delightful rhyming story
- bundles of repetition offering loads of opportunities for audience participation
- the all-essential tickling and giggling!
one wriggly octopus is giggling with glee.
Jolly Olly Octopus laughs away his troubles.
Wriggle-wriggle-giggle – what a lot of bubbles!”
Our wobbly friend is joined by two tickly turtles, three smiley sea horses etc. Everything becomes a little less perky when a shark appears. But as I’m sure you can guess, even sharks are not immune to hilarity.
Loads of fun for a preschool audience, tickles are a must!
Check out Jolly Olly octopus at Auckland Libraries.
