Summaries and Reviews
Summary
Refutes common myths and misconceptions about the octopus, describing the animal's behavior, habitat, anatomy, reproductive cycle, unique talents, and surprising intelligence
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "[Here is] a charming introduction to the truly amazing octopus [from its intelligence to its ability to change colors to the camouflaging black ink it squirts to escape predators]. Lauber's chatty, fact-filled text makes the book a good read-aloud, and Keller's amusing and colorful drawings enhance it—a perfect match of text and illustration." —SLJ.
