The picture book of 2013 - an autumn must-have! Pop royalty, Ringo Starr, meets picture book A-lister, Ben Cort!
Based on the lyrics of the world famous Beatles song, this glorious picture book follows five children on a magical journey through the Octopus's garden. The playful Octopus takes them on a wondrous underwater adventure - riding on the backs of turtles, playing pirates in a sunken city and sheltering from a storm in the octopus's cave.
