Orom Benji Davies, the illustrator of The Storm Whale and Grandad's Island, comes a metafictive story about ...how to build a story! First, a story needs a character. So why not a ukulele-playing octopus? And since this is a story, the octopus has to want something - maybe it dreams of travelling to faraway galaxies in a purple spaceship. But every charac- ter needs an obstacle to overcome, and when the octopus sets out to build its own space- ship out of glue, umbrellas, glitter and waffles ...well, he doesn't have much luck. Could there be another character that could help? Debut author Maggie Tokuda-Hall sets up a funny, smart and warm-hearted story all about storytelling, then hands the baton to imagi- native readers, who will be more than prepared to take it away.
