Product description…

When Oscar Octopus meets-and is smitten by-the lovely Sharkey McGhee, they begin to date: strolling the ocean floor arm in arm, dining out, and going to the movies. Shortly after their fairy tale wedding, they are blessed by eight offspring. The trouble is that Oscar doesn’t have enough arms to hold them all! In this delightfully illustrated book, you’ll discover how Oscar adjusts to the demands of family life…and how the octopus got eight arms!
