Award-winning YA author Claire Zorn brings us a beautiful and heart-warming story alongside her own glorious watercolour illustrations in her first picture book No Place for an Octopus (UQP 2019).

This is a simple story about a child discovering and appreciating the strangeness of an octopus, wanting to take it home and care for it (and imagining all the fun to be had!) but ultimately realising that the octopus is already home in its rock pool. This dynamic duo of a tender, thoughtful child and an octopus with attitude explores the themes of belonging, curiosity, respect and Home.
