Sid the Squid

Ben Sweat
Sid the Squid, the popular book by a DreamWorks story artist, is now on the iPad with interactive features, and it's read by the author himself.

What is the perfect job for a giant squid with ten arms? Sid wants to find it, and the girl Alice helps him on his quest. With his skills, could Sid be a good policeman, fireman, or cook?

Ultimately Sid realizes the “right fit” is key. What can he put his heart into? Everyone will identify with Sid’s trials, errors…and finally success!

Illustrated with colorful verve, Sid is a classic, silent comic. Yet he is an ambitious hero for our times and inspires readers of all ages to follow their dreams."


“If you want to look for a moral in this story, I think perhaps a more valuable one can be found in Sid’s generous spirit. Above all, he wants to help others, and that unselfish desire is eventually what finds him the right job... The art is gorgeous, expressive, and for the most part scientifically accurate.” — Science 2.0


"Sid the Squid is an inspiring tale for readers of all ages of how truly important it is to find gratifying work. Dave Derrick's illustrations of Sid and his quest for finding a job that he will love are vivid and engaging while depicting the meaningful message that anyone can find work that makes them happy!" —Julie Jansen, career coach and author of I Don't Know What I Want, But I Know It's Not This


"Sid the giant squid, with his many useful arms and huge, expressive eyes, searches San Francisco for the perfect job....its hilarious to see Sid's multitasking legs in handsome, computer-generated cartoon illustrations rendered by a seasoned DreamWorks story artist." - Bayviews, Association of Children's Librarians of Northern California
