Oswald the Octopus is moving to Big City. His pet dog, Weenie, is coming too. All their things are packed in Oswald's big red car, even his piano. But when they get to their new home, they need lots of help moving the heavy piano. By the time Harry the penguin, Daisy the daisy, a snowman, and the Egg Twins help them, Oswald and Weenie have made many new friends. Now everyone is hungry. Can they find something yummy to eat? Dan Yaccarino, author and illustrator of many books for children, is the creator of the Oswald preschool series on Nick Jr. This colorful book is filled with the laughs, barks and other happy sounds of Oswald and his friends. L.J. Ganser's spirited narration adds extra sparkle to each line.

Professional reviews

"The plot is simple: Oswald the Octopus and his pet dog, Weenie, need help moving a piano up the stairs into their new home. This pleasant story for young children is also about friendship and making acquaintances when you're a stranger in town, and while youngsters may find this message reassuring, what they'll really love are the barks, creaks, and other noises of a tale in which even the piano says "splinkie-splinkie." Narrator L.J. Ganser performs the book's cast of characters with unflagging gusto, and his pleasant voice and hearty sound effects will do a lot for children who might otherwise miss illustrations.
