Every story starts with nothing, so ...why not an octopus who wants to fly in a spaceship? A delightfully meta picture book that will set imaginations soaring. From Benji Davies, the illustrator of The Storm Whale and Grandad's Island, comes a metafictive story about ...how to build a story! First, a story needs a character. So why not a ukulele-playing octopus? And since this is a story, the octopus has to want something - maybe it dreams of travelling to faraway galaxies in a purple spaceship. But every character needs an obstacle to overcome, and when the octopus sets out to build its own spaceship out of glue, umbrellas, glitter and waffles ...well, he doesn't have much luck. Could there be another character that could help? Debut author Maggie Tokuda-Hall sets up a funny, smart and warm-hearted story all about storytelling, then hands the baton to imaginative readers, who will be more than prepared to take it away.
