Shy Ones

Maurice the pancake octopus likes to fly under the radar.  But there's more to him than meets the eye.

In a world that values the bold and extroverted, sometimes the quiet children can get lost in the noise - or worse - feel pressured to be something that they're not.  Shy Ones is a toast to introverts and their quiet ways, extraordinary gifts, and talents for finding one another.
