Meet Adorabilis - the newest, cutest, fits-in-the-palm-of-your-hand octopus in the ocean. He wasn't always called Adorabilis; in fact, when all the other sea creatures 'meet' him on the ocean floor, he's nameless! Those sea creatures know what's in a name: Anglerfish uses his hook like an angler, Mimic Octopus can change shape and colour, and Giant Squid is huge and powerful. But this little guy can't do any of those things. What will this adorable little octopus's name be? Backmatter will include a note from scientists about the naming process.

Review quote

"Disney artist Chou's digital illustrations are the draw here. Finding Nemo: Nemo's Day Off fans will recognize these big-eyed sea creatures. In the final spread, two of Adorabilis' tentacles form a heart, emphasizing its over-the-top cuteness. . .A sweet dessert for storytime." --Kirkus Reviews

"A sweet imagined story of how the Adorabilis octopus got his name. . .The bubbly typeface paired with Chou's whimsical, geometric illustrations complement Polansky's story well. Adorabilis is an endearing character. . .A fun option for preschool storytimes and as an introduction to sea creatures." --School Library Journal

"Little ones will eagerly dive into this all-around adorable first glimpse at ocean fauna." --Booklist
