The Squid, the Vibrio & the Moon
Ailsa Wild,Aviva Reed,Briony Barr,Gregory Crocetti
A story about the symbiotic relationship between the Hawaiian bobtail squid and the bioluminescent Vibrio bacteria that help it glow in the moonlight.
“I read The Squid, the Vibrio and the Moon to my grandson and he was absolutely riveted. As soon as I finished, he demanded that I read it again. He was swept up by the story, the incredible characters in it and wonders of the relationships that have evolved.”
"This book had me captivated and brought home to me the wonder of symbiosis. It is a must for all libraries so that children can understand how these incredible relationships have evolved."
