Known as one of the terrors of the sea, krakens show up in many mythologies and fantasies, quite often as the bad guy. But author L. Palmer shows us a seldom-seen side of these giants:
Cephalopods are one of the most fascinating and mysterious creatures on the Earth. Giant squids do exist, yet we know incredibly little of these creatures. The Kraken, the mythical form of a squid, is usually portrayed as a horrid monster, a great beast seeking only to devour. What if they are merely misunderstood? What if they are just curious about these finless creatures called “humans” who ride vessels across the waves? What if they have quite refined manners and prefer to dress for the occasion? Answering these questions led me to Priscilla, a mermaid-educated Kraken. I invite you to meet this remarkable creature in Priscilla, The Magnificent, Flying Giant Squid, a tale mixing adventure, steampunk, and aquatic curiosities.
I know I'm excited to meet Priscilla. Are you?
