Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
No wonder science fiction writers throughout the ages have penned sea tales about squid. Whether bigger than a school bus or smaller than a peanut, squid are awe-inspiring as well as otherworldly in appearance. They all have two fins, two tentacles, and eight arms, and they have no bones. They can swim slowly or jet away quickly. Squid protect themselves from predators by squirting a cloud of ink or blending in with the background. What remarkable invertebrates! This book is part of the series, "No Backbone! The World of Invertebrates," and it does a fine job of introducing very young or even non-readers to these amazing creatures. The book's shining advantage is its illustrations—color photography that is beautiful and detailed. The text is easy to read and includes a picture glossary, information about invertebrates, a list for further reading, an index, and online sites to learn more. Reviewer: Judy Crowder
