The Octopus soon makes many friends and the townspeople learn to value its contributions as they embrace it as one of them. Even Mrs Antrobus is persuaded that the eight-legged creature has a place amongst them after it saves her cat. But then one day Octopus disappears and everyone feels bereft.

Crooked Man

There was a crooked man
and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence,
against a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat,
which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together
in a little crooked house.
