"Edgar wanted a pet dog, but what he got instead was a rather brilliant octopus named Jarvis.".
Edgar's struggle to accept Jarvis for what he is, a delightfully precocious octopus and friend, makes for a wonderfully funny and warm story. McKenna's illustrations are lovely and the story rings true for anyone who has ever struggled with being loved and accepted just as they are.
"Meet Edgar. He's determined to train his new puppy. Sit. Stay. Fetch. What could go wrong? It's just that Edgar's dog happens to be an octopus. A particularly brilliant octopus at that. Meet Jarvis. Edgar's life is about to change forever."
