I wrote this many years ago with our younger son Eric in mind. Eric's brother Glenn was allergic to "furry" animals, and Eric loved marine life so much (our house is still filled with too many fish tanks).
In My Very Own Octopus, a little boy wishes for a pet octopus because his older brother is allergic to pets: "But whoever heard of an octopus making anybody sneeze." "My octopus and I could play baseball together and we'd be a whole team all by ourselves." "I could take out more books from the library because my octopus could help me carry them home." "And whenever I fell and cried, my octopus would always be there to help me up and hug me and hug me and hug me and hug me and hug me and hug me and hug me and hug me!"
