The Beatles song dates back to 1969, but the Octopus’s Garden book by Ringo Starr is only available from this week.
Published by Simon & Schuster, it is, of course, a children’s book, covering 32 pages, with imagery by Ben Cort bringing the story to life. That story is loosely the tale of five children on an underwater adventure though the Octopus’s garden, a tale that sees the children hide in giant whelk shells, swim with a blue whale and ride on the backs of turtles before joining the octopus in that famous garden.
But it’s not just a book. The publisher has come up with something to appeal to parents and collectors too – a CD featuring a reading by Ringo Starr and a never-before-heard version of the song is also included with the book.
If you want a copy, it is available to order now, hitting the shelves (real and virtual) from 24th October 2013. it us super-discounted at Amazon.co.uk, selling for just £5.
