Crab or Lobster? A Compare and Contrast Book
What do crabs and lobsters have in common and how are they different? While both animals live in the ocean, one prefers to swim and the other to walk. One can be found in coastal tidepools and the other offshore. They both have skeletons on the outside of their bodies. There’s more to these animals than just being good food for us. Learn about these fascinating crustaceans in this latest addition to the Compare and Contrast Series.

Author/Illustrator Info:

AnnMarie Lisi knew from an early age that she was destined to work with the ocean. Growing up in a coastal Connecticut town, she frequently visited the local beach and aquarium with her family and spent many summer days and nights fishing and exploring the rocky intertidal. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Marine Vertebrate Biology from Stonybrook University on Long Island, she began working in the education department at The Maritime Aquarium. In her current role as Associate Director of Education, AnnMarie oversees many daily operations including summer camps, in-person and virtual programs, overnight experiences, as well as building capacity for interpretation with the Aquarium’s Gallery Ambassador volunteers. She has also written Octopus or Squid? A Compare and Contrast Book for Arbordale and hopes the books will inspire kids to learn about and protect ocean animals and their habitats. When not at work, AnnMarie enjoys exploring the great outdoors with her family, doing nature photography, and cooking.
