While many of us have visible and invisible human differences from each other, I'm fairly certain none of us are of mixed species.

'Hello, My Name Is Octicorn' is poignant in it's clear lesson but the possibility that Mom Octopus and Dad Unicorn met in a personal ad "for fun, friendship and possible strange looking-offspring" isn't quite a message for little ones. It's a rather sad little story with quite evocative illustrations.

I'm glad to have checked it out of the library and read it before sharing it with our youngsters, which I will not be doing.
