The Giant Squid for the Kids

27 Jan

So I realize now that I haven’t reviewed any books for the little ones, and today I’m going to rectify that with the picture book I’m the Biggest Thing In the Ocean by Kevin Sherry. This book is absolutely adorable. The basic tale is of a giant squid that is thrilled beyond belief that there is nothing bigger than him in the ocean, he proceeds to swim about pointing out how he is bigger than various sea animals providing a child with a basic introduction to the different animals that occupy the ocean.
That is until a giant whale came us and swallows him and the rest of the creatures up. They survive, and the squid is slightly disheartened up until he realizes that he is the biggest thing in the whale!
I’m also a great fan of the art work, which is in a very cool style that I don’t think I’ve seen before.
This is a perfect book for any child that loves the sea or animals.

I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean
by Kevin Sherry

The artist’s website also has some fantastic clothing designs, and I proudly sport a good number of his shirts.
