"Edgar wanted a pet dog, but what he got instead was a rather brilliant octopus named Jarvis.".

Edgar's struggle to accept Jarvis for what he is, a delightfully precocious octopus and friend, makes for a wonderfully funny and warm story.  McKenna's illustrations are lovely and the story rings true for anyone who has ever struggled with being loved and accepted just as they are.

Edgar wanted a dog but instead he got an octopus named Jarvis. When he enters Jarvis in the dog show, Jarvis can only be himself. Edgar is embarrassed and Jarvis decides to flush himself down the toilet. Edgar knew he had been wrong and sets out to find Jarvis.

Very cute and detailed pictures, mediocre storyline.
