For hundreds of years the giant sea creature known as the Kraken has been a legend. But finally we are starting to discover that this creature is more than just a myth. Scientists have been searching and researching the giant squid, and they are finally beginning to uncover some of its secrets! I though this book had quite a slow start, but once it got going it became very interesting very quickly. I have always been a fan of octopus and squid, so maybe not everyone will find this as engaging as I did. However, the younger crowd may agree with me when they read about all of the gory details and see all of the creepy pictures.
