The Octopus's Garden by Ringo Starr & Ben Court

My Review

This book is truly one of a kind and we think it's very special indeed. I believe it will stand the test of time and be talked about from many, many years to come!

The storyline follows 5 children on a spectacular underwater adventure. They have so much fun playing, discovering and hanging out with the Octopus. Oh, if only we could all escape to an Octopus's Garden in the shade....

This book comes with a CD, which contains an exclusive song and some reading from Ringo Starr himself! The song is so catchy, it's gets stuck in your head and you will be humming or singing it for ages - good job it's an ace song!

The illustrations are so bright, bold and just bursting with life. We simply adored watching the glorious adventures play out on each page - our favourite page has to be the one with the turtles.

The Octopus's Garden is a fabulously fun book that is full of warmth, humour and friendship. The bringing to life of a well known Beatles song has worked wonders and we delighted in the pages of this beautiful book - and also the material on the CD. This is one book that we will enjoy returning to again and again. A BIG winner for our favourites shelf.

5 / 5 Stars!
