Sid the Squid
by David Derrick

"Sid the giant squid, with his many useful arms and huge, expressive eyes, searches San Francisco for the perfect job. He unsuccessfully directs traffic, fights fire, cooks in a restaurant, washes windows, and attempts other work to great comic effect... it's hilarious to see Sids multitasking legs in handsome, computer-generated cartoon illustrations"

Space Cadet Topo

"Space Cadet Topo has to turn the sun back on and save the galaxy from freezing...The digitally mastered illustrations create a galaxy...full of twists, turns, and traps one would expect to find in classic platform video games."
- School Library Journal
