(Dial Books for Young Readers)

“I’m a GIANT squid and I’m BIG.”

After pointing out the many things that are smaller than he is, Squid concludes that he is, in fact, the biggest thing in the ocean.   Then along comes a whale that swallows him whole.  How will this impact Squid’s self confidence?  Read the book to find out, and you’ll have a good laugh.

Anyone who has ever watched two kids stand back to back to see who is biggest will grasp this book’s appeal.  

A fun read-aloud for even young wiggly readers.   The simple text is complimented by equally simple illustrations comprised of layers beginning with a water color background, cut paper and then inked details, each separated by a layer of glass pried from a pirate ship, according to the back matter.  

Yes, even the back matter is funny.  Why not see how many kids you can crack up with this fun picture book?
