Praise for How to Get Your Octopus to School

"A charming back-to-school book for the nervous octopus in all of us."-Kirkus reviews

"A visual treat of a picture book. The octopus serves as a sweet buffer for viewers who are shy about going to school themselves, and older siblings may benefit from a reminder to be patient with little ones who don't know the drill just yet." --BCCB

"Scharnhorst offers funny and endearingly patient point-by-point advice on a morning routine . . . All the while, Sinquett's breezy digital art depicts a small, salmon-hued octopus humorously exhibiting arrayed behaviors both human and cephalopod . . . [a] sweetly humorous take on a familiar rite of passage." --Publishers Weekly
