Squidtoons: Exploring Ocean Science with Comics
This is an informational book with comics. They talk about sea dragons, salmon, squid, blue fin tuna, grunion, lobster, crabs, sharks, manta rays, jellyfish, sea turtles, and a lot more! In the beginning of all the chapters, there is an anatomy of the creatures discussed in the chapter. The market squid has lots of funny things in its anatomy. They repeat some information in the market squid chapter. My favorite chapter is “6 Ways to Check If You Are a Lobster.” I thought it was really informative. I learned a lot. I also like the one about sharks. I want a poster of the last comic in the shark chapter. Horseshoe crab blood is used to make medicine. I have no idea why there is a drawing of a yeti crab with pizza and burgers on its arms. I never knew whale vomit was so valuable. I thought the drawing for “Anatomy of the Moon Jelly” was actually a photo.
I thought this book was really funny and informative, and the pictures were really good. I think this book is great for schools and aquariums. There is a glossary at the end of the book. I think that this book is good for ages ten and up.
