More Sid the Squid Reviews

“Sid the Squid was truly wonderful!  The expressions on Sid’s face are priceless, the art is fantastic, and I love that the artist added the Monterey Bay Aquarium kelp forest. Thanks for sharing and publishing this wonderful book!

Searching for the perfect job, Sid, a giant squid, leaves his ocean home for the big city. There, a new human friend helps him locate and try out a variety of roles, from traffic director to electrician. Nothing seems just right, until he saves a whale and finds his niche at an aquarium with an animal-rescue program. Derrick, a story artist at DreamWorks Animation, wrote and digitally created the art for this, his first picture book, which reads like a storyboard for an animated cartoon. The plot is neatly summarized by the back-cover portrait of the anthropomorphized squid holding the tools of his various trades.
