Olivia the Teenage Octopus, by Julia Dweck
Have you met Olivia? She's the cool, new girl who moved in down the street. She’s lots of fun, great at dodge ball and, oh yes, she’s an octopus. Olivia shares her tale in her own words. “I’m just like any teenage girl, so please don’t stop and stare. I enjoy pajama parties where I style my best friends’ hair. I’m great at games like Twister, so go and spin the spinner. No matter where it lands, it’s true; I’ll always be the winner!” Olivia would love to be your best friend. She's always ready to help out and lend any of her eight hands. You'll fall in love with Olivia and her humorous, rhyming story with a universal message of acceptance and appreciation for diversity.
