Who wouldn't want a cephalopod for a pet? Apparently Edgar.  Jarvis the octopus does every thing he can to please Edgar while still uniquely being himself, but all Edgar can see is what Jarvis is not: a puppy. It's not until Jarvis flushes himself back to the ocean that Edgar realizes what he's lost and what he has to do to bring Jarvis home. Gorgeous illustrations!

As with all John Boyne’s writing, I was quite taken with this book. He tells good stories of historical circumstances and through the perspective of his characters provides an intimate look of the times. This story is a good introduction to the First World War, of how the war affects a soldier, his loved ones, conscientious objectors, and of the public’s dawning recognition of what then was called “shell shock.”
