Legendary Primer - K is for Kraken

Brian Ness

The Kraken is a legendary sea monster notoriously lurking along the shores of Norway and Greenland. Spotted by sailors, appearances of the Kraken begin with bubbly waters, strange, dangerous currents, and sudden appearances of islets. Authors from Tennyson, to Melville, to Jules Verne have written about the scary tales of the Kraken, keeping the story alive for years and years.
