Once upon a time in a beautiful ocean lived an octopus named Jack. He was a baby octopus with short tentacles and a clever brain.
One day, when Jack was older, he saw that the ocean was filled with rubbish. “Oh no! What’s happened to my home?” cried Jack.
Jack sobbed. He told his friends to help, but his friends were trapped by the plastic bags and rubbish.
Shortly after, a magnificent four meter black and white whale named Bob swam towards him. The whale wanted to eat Jack’s friends, so Bob used his teeth that were as sharp as knives to bite the other creatures.
Suddenly, Jack stopped the whale by wrapping his eight long tentacles around its two eyes which looked as deep as pools of black. Later, Jack used his ink to escape as a magician would in a disappearing act.
Not only did Jack get bitten by the whale, but his body was left with a deep scar. The mighty whale was going to go hungry again.
The ocean grew more dirty and green. More and more fish were vanishing. The coral turned dull and grey like bones.
After Jack escaped, he went to find his friends. He looked and looked and searched and searched. Finally, he found his friends trapped under a sea of plastic bags that looked like floating jellyfish. “We’re here! We’re here! Come save us!” they cried.
Jack cleverly used his tentacles to open the plastic bags and set them free. “Thanks!” they cheered.
The next morning, Jack and his friends woke up and started looking for breakfast. They found that there was no food to eat. The water looked like something out of a witch’s cauldron.
Jack’s friends were afraid because some fish had already starved to death; some even had plastic in their mouths.
Suddenly, Jack had an idea. “Why don’t we ask the other fish and the whale to clear the rubbish?” asked Jack. His friends agreed and asked the other fish to help.
However, the whale looked at Jack and the other fish like its next meal. “Please don’t eat us!” cried one fish. “If we work together, we can pick up all the rubbish and get our homes back with lots of food to eat!” Jack protested.
Bob joined Jack’s clean-up crew.
The small fish used their tails, Jack used his long tentacles and Bob used his gigantic mouth to collect the rubbish. They found an empty cave to put it all in.
After all their efforts, the whole ocean became beautiful again. The sea looked like a mirror.
Bob apologised to Jack. “No worries,” said Jack. “I forgive you.”
They all lived very happily and became best friends. It is our job, as humans, to help protect the ocean and save creatures like Jack. What would you do if you were Jack the Octopus for a day?
