    Book details

When a giant squid takes inventory of all of the creatures in the ocean, he realizes that he?s way bigger than most of them! Of course, there are bigger things lurking around . . . but maybe this giant squid with a giant touch of hubris doesn?t really care?

First-time author-illustrator Kevin Sherry is sure to garner fans of all sizes for his perfect-for-preschool read-aloud with simple text, bold and delightful collage art, and a lovable squid whose spirit just cannot be crushed.

Choking Hazard - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

PreS–A lighthearted, clever story presented in an oversize, colorful package. A bright blue giant squid cruises through the ocean, proudly noting that he is bigger than all the creatures he encounters. From shrimp to shark, he repeats his refrain, I'm bigger than…, sounding remarkably similar to a three-year-old cheerfully cataloging his world. Briefly dismayed when swallowed by a voracious whale (who has also swallowed up everyone else whole including the shark), the squid rallies by noting, I'm the biggest thing in this whale! This buoyant tale, filled with nonthreatening cartoonish denizens of the deep blue (and turquoise and green) sea, makes no effort to be realistic or educational but just simple fun, which is its charm. (Note the squid on the back cover proudly stating that he is bigger than the bar code.) –Susan Moorhead, New Rochelle Public Library, NY Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

"Waves of exuberance flow out of this crowd-pleaser, in which a squid proudly points out how much bigger it is than any shrimp, clam, octopus or fish in the neighborhood." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review“Sherry renders his hero and habitat in bright colors and bold, simple shapes that will be surefire eye magnets for preschoolers….”—Publishers Weekly, starred review --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

    I am strangely obsessed with the giant squid, so obviously I had to order this book. My son is 7 months old and this is one of his favorites, he often pulls it out of the pile and starts to chew on it expectantly. The pictures are colorful and clear and really seem to grab his attention. It is a great length to read to a little one. And I love the silly side of the story and squid's optimism, I think my son will continue to enjoy the story as he gets older and is able to understand more.

    This book is really fun and my little girl loves the funny twist at the end. She also likes that she can anticipate the text enough that she can "read" it herself. The way the words are written makes the story more lively so it's not boring to read it over and over and the illustrations really hold preschoolers' attention with the bold colors and clearly drawn sea creatures. I'm really glad I bought this book.

    My toddler son is obsessed with this book. It's a simple story with repetitive text and he loves trying to "read" it himself. The giant squid is very proud that he is the biggest thing in the ocean and goes though naming all the animals he is bigger than...until he gets eaten by a whale. He is a little disappointed, but then realizes he is is biggest thing inside the whale. It has nice bright illustrations as well.

    My boys LOVE these books. I've read them so many times to them that my almost 3 year old can recite each page without my help. I love Kevin Sherry's books... They're cute and clever, and my 2 and 3 year olds have made them their favorites.

    Bought this 3 years ago for a homeschool unit about the ocean, when my daughter was 2. She still asks to read this all the time. She knows all the words and is still entertained by the story.

    This book coould not be more delightful. My boys love, love love it! All of the Kevin Sherry books are a hoot. Check out "I'm the best Artist in the Ocean" and "I'm the Scariest Thing in the Castle" Super cute, and lots of fun!!

    Here's this squid, with nothing better to do than to brag about what he's bigger then. Why, he's bigger than this fish! And that fish! And THAT fish! He's the biggest thing in the ocean...!Right up until he gets eaten, of course. But cheer up. He's still the biggest thing in the whale.There's not much to the story, clearly, but little children think it's very funny. It's great for those kiddos without a long attention span yet.
