If you were an octopus, you would have eight legs to put into your pants!
Follow one little boy through his day as he playfully considers how mealtime, bath time, nap time, and many other activities would be different if he were a bird, a tiger, or any number of baby animals. At the end of the day he realizes that the best thing of all is to be himself!
Julie Markes's first picture book is charmingly illustrated by Maggie Smith.
Julie Markes lives with her husband, Eric Schine, and their two sons, Charlie and Nicholas, in Brooklyn, New York. Her books include Thanks For Thanksgiving; I Can't Talk Yet, But When I Do ...; Good Thing You're Not An Octopus!; Sidewalk 123; and Sidewalk.
Maggie Smith thinks it's a good thing she's not an octopus--it would be too hard to draw underwater! She is the author and illustrator of There's a Witch Under the Stairs, Counting Our Way to Maine, Dear Daisy, Get Well Soon, and other titles. Ms. Smith lives in New York City.
