The Lighthouse Family #5 The Octopus by Cynthia Rylant illustrated by Preston McDaniels*

We love this series!
In this book Whistler and Lila explore the estuary and the new creatures waiting for the tide to return.  They discover an octopus in a pool of water and engage in a lively conversation with him.  Then Lila realizes she is stuck in the mud.  With quick thinking Cleo (the octopus) manages to free her before the tide washed over them.
*Highly recommend.
Perfect fantasy series for toddlers/preschoolers to hear read aloud and a gentle fantasy for elementary readers.
*Borrowed from the library.
