Interview With A Shark and Other Ocean Giants Too
Intrepid wildlife reporter Andy Seed is back with another collection of interviews for which he has risked personal safety and gotten seriously wet! Yes, this time he’s talking to the giants of the oceans...
While chatting to ten of the sea’s biggest creatures, Andy finds out that the anglerfish lives in the dark at a depth of 200 metres and can eat things bigger than itself thanks to a stretchy belly, bendy bones, and a massive mouth that opens extra wide.
But the stories of giant squid attacking ships are entirely made up – even though they actually have ten super-long tentacles rather than eight. And no giant creature could be prouder than the blue whale is of its enormous poos – the biggest of any animal on earth.
So if there’s anything you want to know about bull sharks, killer whales (who are really dolphins), narwhals, manta rays, octopuses (favourite books: 'Diary of a Wimpy Squid'), ocean sunfish or conger eels, this is the book for you.
With fabulous, quirky illustrations and the familiar question-and-answer format, this is a welcome addition to the "Interview With …" series and includes suggestions for positive action to protect endangered species.
