THE OCTOPUS

Whether you are repulsed or fascinated (or both) by the octopus, the information about him here is bound to hold you riveted to the book from start to finish, Olive Earle's factual yet humorous style is familiar from her other nature studies and, added to her realistic pencil drawings, there is a great deal of relevant detail. Different kinds of octopus are enumerated, from squids to giant cuttle fish, along with how they are colored, eat, crawl or zip through the water by jet propulsion, reproduce, and where they live. A good introduction which may also remove some fears.
