The perfect pants are hard to find for someone shaped like me. Could Octopants be just the job? Why not dive in and see . . .?

There are all-in-ones for urchins and slipper-socks for eels… but will Octopus ever find a pair of pants to fit? A hilarious rhyming romp, packed with underwater underwear!

Review by Stacey

Octopants is an amusing children’s book that is all about an Octopus trying to buy some pants (underwear) as he is naked down there. He has tried every store that he knows and he can’t find any to fit him, he just has too many legs.

The story is told in a rhyming style and is adorned with colourful, vibrant, and fun illustrations. We all know that an Octopus doesn’t have legs it has tentacles, but for the amusement of the reader, which is little children, this is what they have been called – at the beginning.

I loved this book. It actually made me giggle. It is silly, daft, and a whole lot of fun. There is so much more to the book than the story. If you check out the illustrations you will see lots of humorous moments too, such as the names of the book or fish in the background shopping.

The story is truly wonderful and we all need something to amuse us now and again and this will do the trick for children as well as provide them with an adorable story that is both heartwarming and sweet.

Author Info

Suzy Senior octopants

Suzy Senior lives and works at the top of a huge hill in Yorkshire. She lives with her husband, two lovely children, two guinea pigs, a hamster, some fish, a grumpy kestrel, twelve whippets and a family of cheeky ferrets.

She has worked in publishing for what seems like ages, and still really loves it. In her spare time she likes to write books for children, but usually has to clean out the guinea pigs instead.*

*That’s all true, except for the bit about the ferrets, the kestrel and the whippets. To be honest, it’s mainly just fish and guinea pigs. But that’s plenty, really.
