Octopus Rex

Musical Stories for Children

Author Barbara Hart

Octopus Rex Saves Christmas is the fourth installment in the Octopus Rex series by author and Grammy-nominated songwriter Barbara Hart. Hart has had a Rex Christmas story in mind ever since she started the series sixteen years ago.  She believes every child who celebrates Christmas dreams what it would be like to see Santa in their living room delivering gifts on Christmas Eve.

What adventure Rex and Timmy will have next is still a secret, but rest assured they will have one!

Happy Holidays to all!
