Octavia and Her Purple Ink Cloud by Donna and Doreen Rathmell


Imagine an Octopus that shoots yellow ink clouds!

Octavia Octopus and her sea-animal friends love playing camouflage games to practice how they would hide or protect themselves from a “big, hungry creature” in Octavia and Her Purple Ink Cloud. But Octavia just cannot seem to get her colors right when she tries to shoot her ink cloud. What happens when the big, hungry shark sows up looking for his dinner? My son and I enjoyed finding out what happens in this fun and educational story! Great for ages 4-8 and sold for $6.95 at the Sylvan Dell Publishing website. We also loved the “For Creative Minds” at the end of the book where we learned about fun facts about animal camouflage and protection techniques and information about Octopuses.

Self Disclosure: I received this book for review purposes.


  1. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to your blog before but after browsing through a few of the posts I
    realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m definitely happy I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!
