From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-This introduction to octopuses begins with a simple but dramatic question: "Will she eat today? Or be eaten?" Readers follow along as an octopus encounters a variety of tasty treats but is thwarted by several sea animals that are higher up on the food chain. Asides in a smaller font often accompany the octopus's narrow escapes, giving scientific explanations for her evasive actions. Budding marine biologists will enjoy the vivid, collage-style illustrations, while teachers and parents will be satisfied with the back matter, which includes additional info on octopuses and activity ideas. VERDICT While not for hard-hitting research, this selection is a fun introduction to octopuses. Recommended for school libraries in need of more cephalopod titles.-Brittany Drehobl, Eisenhower Public Library District, IL --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
