Lucy is an incurably uncool teen, and an octopus. For no reason at all (other than that she isn't very "girly"), she is very unpopular, and even her parents don't like her! The only friend who will hang out with her in public is Puffy, her pet puffer fish. But Lucy's haters don't know that she is secretly an awesome guitarist, and she has been picked to join everyone's favourite local band, Lamington Fuzz. While Lucy rocks at doing her own thing, her classmates realise that spending time with the "cool kids" isn't all it's cracked up to be...    Richy K. Chandler's latest graphic novel is a celebration of being who you are, and a story about why it pays to be kind. Bubbling with fun and wit, it will buoy up the self-esteem of children aged 9+, and is a delight to read for big kids of any age.

Industry Reviews

This is what "all ages" entertainment should always be: full of lessons and laughs for the kids, with more than enough of the same for adults. -- OpticalSloth.com
Taking that great comic strip tradition of the loveable loser and then amplifying it to the point of distortion, Lucy the Octopus is, in turns, blackly humorous and actually really rather poignant. An absolute must-read. -- Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier
Kids will learn lessons from this book and will learn them in ways that will make the lesson stick. There is nothing like humour to convince us of the wrongness of our misdeeds, and Lucy the Octopus has it in spades. -- Healthybooks
