From a New York Times bestselling author comes this poignant, lyrical tale about nature's great escape artist--perfect for fans of the Oscar-winning documentary film My Octopus Teacher.

The octopus is happy in his undersea cave until one day, a diver captures him and takes him to live in an aquarium. The humans give him food and tests that look like toys. But every day is the same, and the octopus soon tires of captive life. And so, under the cover of darkness, he makes his daring escape...

Maile Meloy and Felicita Sala bring us a story full of excitement and heart, about the thrill of hard-won freedom and the pull of home.
