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.
Perfect fantasy series for toddlers/preschoolers to hear read aloud and a gentle fantasy for elementary readers.
