Hello, My Name is Octicorn: 01/24/17
Hello, My Name is Octicorn by Kevin Diller is a picture book that tackles the subject of blended families with off the wall humor. Octi is a one of a kind creature, the child of an octopus and a unicorn.
His parents met at a costume party, or so the story goes. Being one a kind and part of two very different worlds, Octi often finds himself unsure what to do and the people around him are unsure how to treat him.
Despite the awkwardness of the situations, Octi keeps his sense of humor. It's a cute book and I think can serve as a ice breaker for children to understand or explain their own unique situations.
