Description of this Book

Published to coincide with the unveiling of the first colossal squid put on public display, Dr Peter Batson joins forces with artist Geoffrey Cox to tell the whole story. We are introduced to the deep-sea world of the squid - legend and reality, the Kraken of myth, the modern search using submersible vehicles and the story of how a New Zealand fishing boat caught the first intact specimen. This book brings vividly to life the one of the world's least-understood and most fascinating animals.

Author's Bio

Mike Dickison taught himself to play the ukulele in 2005 and started a ukulele group in Durham, North Carolina, where he was studying for his PhD at a time when the ukulele renaissance was sweeping America. Returning to New Zealand, he discovered that kids here were learning from books written by Australians and Americans, and resolved to set that right. Mike has been a teacher and writer for 15 years and maintains an internationally popular ukulele page on the internet (www.kiwiukulele.co.nz).
