Giant Squid

Among 2016's amazing group of nonfiction titles, Giant Squid, written by Candace Fleming and illustrated by Eric Rohmann, stands out for the many accolades it has received. The American Library Association named it a Sibert Honor Book as a distinguished informational book for children, the National Council of Teachers of English named it an Orbis Pictus Honor Book, and the National Science Teachers Association included it in their current list of Outstanding Science Trade Books.  

Members of the Sibert Award Committee noted that the "poetic text and lush oil paintings immerse readers in a suspenseful deep-sea investigation of the elusive giant squid, exploring what is known – and what remains unknown – about this fascinating marine creature."
