A beautifully produced, richly illustrated book showcasing the day-to-day adventures of independent girl-about-town Victoria Prismall and her pet land octopus Otto. Yes, a full-sized octopus. And the format? We love it...this is an extra-wide oblong hardcover, measuring just 7" high but 14" long. It's WAY, WAY COOL in every way.
Thirty panoramic, full-page illustrations humorously chronicle the duo's home and social activities that include bathing, biking, dating, cooking, playing croquet, and pumpkin carving. Accompanying text explains the Dos and Don'ts of living with a large octopus. The Victorian era characters and period-influenced design elements are enhanced by a hardcover binding plus two-layer embossing and spot varnish, and the interior is printed on extra heavy paper.
