"What Are the Cephalop-Odds?"

 I read this delightful poem for children in the book World Rat Day: Poems About Real Holidays You've Never Heard of by J. Patrick Lewis. This one is written to mark International Cephalopod Awareness Day (and you know I've always loved cephalopods).

I wish I was an octopus
In inky-dinky weather.
Then you and I could octopush
Our suction cups together.

Isn't that cute?

In case you're looking for it, the book was published in 2013 by Candlewick Press.

Here's to not melting!
