About the Author

Karen Wallace says octopuses have always had a special place in her imagination, from the storybook monsters of folklore to the young octopus she once watched escape from a fish trap, climb down a ladder, and sink back into the safety of the sea. Mike Bostock, while illustrating GENTLE GIANT OCTOPUS, became fascinated by his subjects--the delicate changing color and texture of their skin, the rubbery, rippling way they move, and their transparent soap-bubble-like babies.


A wonderful tie-in to nature or science units about the sea and its inhabitants. --School Library Journal In a picture-book format, this science book presents information on the giant octopus . . . The bold, bright watercolor illustrations help the odd-looking creature become more accessible to young audiences, making this excellent for reading aloud in a classroom setting. --Booklist Brief text and watercolor paintings describe how a female giant octopus moves, protects herself, and lays her eggs . . . With its striking artwork, it will make an enticing read-aloud for children interested in this fascinating sea creature. --School Library Journal
