I used to love this book when I was younger but now I kind of don't have an interest.I mean,its interesting but its a story of a talking octopus with a hat!that is something all kids should love.Plus,it doesn't make sense,an octopus on land who does human like stuff?! What the heck! a walking octopus with a hat that is living on land? I don't and can't get it.and also,another thing is that he is blue.octopus aren't blue! everybody knows that.but im a good drawer and I like the way Oswald was made or drew.thanks to the author because that book was easy to read and That book helped me learn how to read and thats how i know now.
