A delightful exploration of the fascinating octopus, taking young minds on an interactive journey of discovery!

‘As exciting and entertaining as a non-fiction book can be’ Greenpeace Magazine


What do the ocean and space have in common?
How did octopuses and humans evolve?
What exactly are cephalopods – and why do they have such a funny name?

Octopuses are the oldest and most intelligent creatures on our planet, true aliens whose abilities amaze us. Michael Stavaric and Michèle Ganser have created a non-fiction book full of surprising twists and turns that offer much more than just imparting knowledge. Together with their readers, they embark on an adventure into the world of the octopus.

Full of funny details and vivid descriptions, Amazing Octopus is a book that is as unusual as the octopus itself.
