The Octopus


Creator of THE ONLY CHILD Guojing’s THE OCTOPUS, in which a girl rescues a tiny octopus, helps it find a new home, and comes to appreciate the ocean in a whole new way, to Kelsey Skea at Two Lions, in an exclusive submission, for publication in spring 2026, by Isabel Atherton at Creative Authors (world, ex East Asia).




“I have worked with Isabel for 8 years and she has recently brokered my fourth book deal for me. She is the most wonderful agent any writer could wish for fighting their corner.  I value her continued support, advice and friendship.”
