Synopsis: Provides a complete guide to this unique sea creature, discussing its defense mechanisms and its ability to change and transform to blend into its surroundings, and offers information about the relatives of the octopus, such as the squid and cuttlefish. Jr Lib Guild.

From School Library Journal: Grade 5 Up. Opening with the escape of a giant North Pacific octopus from its aquarium tank, the author fascinates readers as she informs them about this amazing creature and its smaller relatives. By taking readers underwater with Jim Cosgrove, a Canadian researcher with the Royal British Columbia Museum, Cerullo and Rotman give them an intimate look at this unusual, yet marvelous cephalopod. Scientists are intrigued by its intelligence, calling it the "primate of the sea," as it can solve problems and learn from its fellow octopuses. The female, who mates, conceives, and then cares for her eggs in a solitary den, never leaving them alone to hunt for food, thus starving herself to death, becomes an almost tragic figure in this telling. With outstanding full-color photographs, this author/photographer team offers a reverent look at this changing, secretive, creature of the sea. Andreu Llamas's Octopuses (Gareth Stevens, 1996) gives much the same information but in a less entertaining manner.?Kathleen McCabe, East Meadow Public Library, NY
