Leo and the Octopus

Leo and the Octopus (Paperback)

£6.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

The world was too bright for Leo.



And too loud.



"I must be living on the wrong planet," Leo thought.



Leo struggles to make sense of the world. He doesn't understand the other children in his class, and they don't seem to understand him. But then one day, Leo meets Maya.



Maya is an octopus, and the more Leo learns about her, the more he thinks that perhaps he isn't alone in this world, after all.



"The sensitive descriptions throughout the book of what it is like to have autism are accurate and perceptive on so many levels" (Professor Tony Attwood, author of Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals).

When Isabelle Marinov was nine years old, her parents gave her a red typewriter for her birthday. She started crafting stories in German and Luxembourgish, her native language, straight away, but it wasn't until her first son was born that she returned to writing full time. Isabelle writes across several genres, writing picture books, middle grade and screenplays. She speaks four languages fluently, but English is her favourite for prose. She is a member of the SCBWI and a 2017/18 Children's Literature Fellow at Stony Brook University in Southampton, NY. Chris Nixon is a multidisciplinary artist creating across illustration, graphic design, creative direction and public art. Based in Perth, Australia, Chris's work is inspired by the West Coast and classic surf culture with an emphasis on the handmade and crafted, using colour, texture and pattern across a wide range of media from children's books to animation, commercial illustration and large artwork installations.
