Children’s stories that are told in rhyme
Are winners for me almost every time.
That this is also based on something real
Made it an even more amazing deal.
Inky is an octopus trapped in an aquarium who
Dreams of escaping to explore the oceans blue.
Told from Inky’s point of view
This great escape is based on something true.
Brilliant, child friendly illustrations in colour, too
Help bring the story to life for me and you.
A heart warming story for everyone to enjoy
Whatever your age – or if you’re a girl or boy.
There are interesting facts for children to explore
About other cephalopods and so learn more
About these amazing creatures both huge and small.
I recommend this to teachers, parents and children – in fact, to you all!
I requested and was lucky enough to be given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Out of this tank, I must be free.
I must explore the open sea!
Follow Inky the octopus as he escapes from the National Aquarium of New Zealand to the ocean! Based on a true story, Inky the Octopus: Bound for Glory chronicles the adventure that the real-life Inky might have taken on his escape to freedom in the open ocean!
