Roof Octopus

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Rogério Coelho. Young Nora awakens one day to find an octopus on the roof of her apartment building. Her anxious neighbors finally relax when their visitor helps wash a car, weeds some flower boxes, etc. But will the octopus come through with its promise to be Nora's show-and-tell guest at school? The off-kilter, no-wiggle-room illustrations are just right for a story so entertainingly askew.
