GIANT SQUID: SEARCHING FOR A SEA MONSTER by Mary M. Cerullo and Clyde F.E. Roper
If you find these real-life sea monsters fascinating, you will definitely want to check out this new non-fiction book. Written for an upper-elementary age audience, Giant Squid shares facts about the giant squid and its biology as well as exploring the history of scientific knowledge about the giant squid and the legends that once grew up around the enormous sea creature. The book has many illustrations and photographs (some of them fantastically gross!) and may appeal to reluctant readers. I highly recommend it!
