Description


An empowering picture book about creativity, making mistakes, and changing your perspective

When Arlo decides to draw an octopus, he can’t help but think that maybe he’s just not an octopus drawer. His drawing has a head that looks like a hill and eight squiggly arms that look like roads. It’s an octopus disaster-piece! But just as Arlo vows to never draw an octopus again, he makes a discovery that changes his perspective about his drawing . . . and much more.
This endearing and relatable story gives readers of all ages a gentle reminder that we’re better than we may think. Sometimes all it takes is a second look.

 

About the Author


Lori Mortensen drew a lot of pictures when she was little, including a few crumpled “disaster-pieces”! Today, she is the author of many popular children’s books, including Cowpoke Clyde and Dirty Dawg illustrated by Michael Allen Austin and If Wendell Had a Walrus illustrated by Matt Phelan. She lives in Northern California with her family and her cat, Max, who’d much rather nap than draw. Rob Sayegh Jr. is an author and illustrator who loves creating playful worlds with funny characters to make families giggle together. He is a professional snack taste-tester, falls in love with every dog he meets, and draws in crayon, just like Arlo. He has spent most of his life designing toys to encourage kids to constantly play, learn, and imagine new possibilities. He currently lives with his family in San Francisco, California.

When author and illustrator Rob Sayegh Jr. is not doodling or writing, he enjoys falling in love with every dog he meets and exploring San Francisco, where he currently lives with his partner and two dogs, Penny and Rigby.
