The Review:

What a fun read! Who knew octopuses were so brilliant! Wellโ€ฆ Shelby Van Pelt did! I loved the narration from the octopus – what a clever character and way of telling the story. Remarkably Bright Creatures brought a few of my favorite pieces of a book together: flawed, broken people, family and the true meaning of love! Tova reminds me a lot of my own very proper and polite grandmother, from a generation where manners, niceties and tidiness were ingrained in your everyday life. I will miss Tova!

A few fun facts about Great Pacific Octopuses:
๐Ÿ™ They prefer alone time
๐Ÿ™ They have rectangle pupils
๐Ÿ™ They have 9 brains! No wonder they are so remarkable!
๐Ÿ™ They have 280 suckers PER arm for a total of 2,240 suckers!
