‘Fourteen Animals (That Are Definitely Not an Octopus)’ Board Book by Gabe Pyle

Need a new board book for your young reader, but tired of all the cheesy platitudes and talking construction trucks? Then you’ll get a kick out of Fourteen Animals (That Are Definitely Not an Octopus).

Written and illustrated by Gabe Pyle — brother of Nathan W. Pyle, creator of those Strange Planet alien comics — and based on his own popular Threadless tee from a couple years ago, each page of this book features an octopus hiding in plain sight as various animals.

Some examples:


Little kids (especially those who love sea animals) will enjoy finding that sneaky ol’ octopus as they read along, and parents get a good chuckle out of it too.

The board book is $9 on Amazon.
