This story is part of a series of Hullaballoo adventures about Hullaballoo the Giant Whale, Killacalloo the magical Floating Island, The pirate ship Surprise, Ezeriah Swizzlesticks the wizard and many more. Hullaballoo, the giant blue-coloured whale, is searching the oceans for the floating magical island of Killacalloo, which got separated from him during the great storm. Capt. Squirty Bertie, a greedy pirate, is hot on his trail and determined to find Killacalloo before Hullaballoo and Ezeriah Swizzlesticks do.

During the search to find the island, Squirty Bertie’s trusty shipmates, Joshie Squashy and Mattie Boo, spot biggest, brightest rainbow they have ever seen. When they inform the captain, he decides to follow it for it is told that there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. However, it isn’t gold they find, but a colourful surprise.

With vibrantly coloured illustrations, Lotsa, the Rainbow Coloured Octopus is a thoroughly entertaining tale that will engage young readers from beginning to end.
