Crocodile Books, USA,
1st American ed.
So fabulous and mysterious a creature is the octopus, with its eight arms, its intelligence, its black ink, and its rambling ways, that its status is nearly as mythic as a dragon. Yet we know they exist down there in the sea, hidden in their caves and crannies. In this story, lucky Nico actually finds a little octopus in a fisherman's net and rescues it, bringing it home with him. But will an octupus make a good pet?
