An Amazon Best Book of the Year
Meet Octicorn, the funny, sweet, and disarming character who is a champion for anyone who has ever felt a little bit different. And isn’t that everyone? This is a self-published success story from debut authors Justin Lowe and Kevin Diller.
Octicorn is half octopus, half unicorn, half confused . . . which sometimes makes it hard to fit in.
But maybe that’s not such a bad thing.
About the Author
Kevin Diller is a writer and producer who lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and two kids.
Justin Lowe is an artist and filmmaker who somehow entered adulthood with his childlike imagination entirely intact. Over a decade ago now, Justin took Sharpie to paper and combined an octopus with a unicorn. That doodle somehow took on a life of its own and is now throwing a party.

— School Library Journal
“At once funny and heartfelt, this highly original, important book helps kids to think about their own place among others and encourages acceptance of others, especially those who are left out.”
