Octopus or Squid? A Compare and Contrast Book
Octopuses and squids are sometimes confused. They both have eight arms, but squids also have two tentacles. They both live in saltwater. One swims or walks along the ocean floor with strong arms. The other only swims using fins. Learn more about what these animals have in common and how they are different through the latest installment of the Compare and Contrast Book 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.
