Children's large thin softcover book, 'Tickly Octopus', by Ruth Galloway. Book has quite a few bend/crease marks and slight edge wear on cover, as well as page flip marks on inside pages.
~Down in the ocean lived tickly octopus with eight twisty, twirly tentacles that loved to tickle the fish. Octopus thought tickling was fun! But some of the other sea creatures didn't like to be tickled. But Octopus thought that tickling was what he did best. One day Octopus tickled Oyster while she was sleeping. Oyster was so startled that she lost her pearl. After apologizing, Octopus went in search for Oyster's pearl and soon discovered that he had many talents other than tickling. Octopus could swim fast and squeeze into small places, but best of all he was able to find and return Oyster's pearl! This wonderful story about self-discovery is the companion title to Clumsy Crab, Fidgety Fish and Smiley Shark and features the same bold, delightful illustrations and humorous text.
