International Octopus Day (Octo 8!) Its the perfect day to read a favorite octopus story or poem, or if you are so inclined, to write one. If you are an artist, why not create an amazing cephalopod to dazzle the eye. Anything goes, as long as it has eight legs and suction cups! Here is a story I wrote for Octopus Day, 2016. The link will give you access to a PDF document. Feel free to save it for your digital library, if you wish.
