A children’s picture book featuring a cartoon-loving squid and his colorful adventures. The metered text follows Squirt, who at first is so captivated by a show on his “holocam” that he doesn’t want to play. “I do not want to! Can’t you see? I want to sit and watch TV!” Squirt tells his mother, who has brighter plans for him. Two pages of squid facts end the book. Part of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Oklahoma Aquarium.
