"When Captain Samofar is threatened by a ferocious shark during a deep-sea dive, Emile comes to his rescue. The grateful captain invites the friendly octopus to come live with him, which Emile does happily! He becomes a lifeguard by day, and sleeps in a bathtub full of salt water each night. But after Emile saves the captain and his cohorts by capturing a dangerous group of sea-faring smugglers, he decides that the spotlight is not for him, and returns to his quieter life underwater.

"A charming tale of a fearless eight-legged hero that will delight fearless readers of all ages."

Written by Tomi Ungerer.
